Robert Myles said of the show, “This is Shakespeare’s most performed play of all time, and I’m hugely excited to be a part of it both as a director and actor! This would not have been possible without the amazing creative team on the show, including Associate Director Emily Ingram who is leading the mechanicals scenes and doing an amazing job. This is one of the most raucous and celebratory plays in the canon, filled with magic and mayhem. I’m so excited to tackle Bottom in our new medium.”
