Charmingly Chaotic bicycle-powered Shakespeare!

One night in the beautiful Riverhill Himalayan Gardens the The HandleBards performed 'A Mid Summer Night's Dream'. The HandleBards are a troupe of travelling actor who pedalled from London to West Angus, Scotland, carrying with them all the necessary set, props and costumes needed to perform two of Shakespeare's greatest plays: 'A Mid Summer Night's Dream' and 'Hamlet'.

We've been very fortunate to be involved in the design and build of a bit their tour set - a bicycle power 'washing line' (for want of a better description!) that effectively moves their set onto the stage using the power of pedalling!
