I, Peaseblossom, written and performed by Tim Crouch, is the story of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream told through the fevered dreams of a neglected fairy. It toured to Auckland, New Zealand and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia as part of Shakespeare Lives. Along with a relaxed performance in Kuala Lumper, young audience members were encourage to dress up as fairies.

Crouch held a workshop on the technique and symbolism in Shakespeare at the Auckland with The University of Auckland. It was a rare chance for literature students, theatre practitioners and interested fans to learn from one of the best. In Malaysia, Tim Crouch held an interactive post-performance workshop to engage young audiences through Shakespeare and a workshop for local performers and theatre makers on Adapting and performing Shakespeare.

“We have been chasing Tim across the globe to come to NZ ever since he performed the outrageously entertaining I Peaseblossom in Singapore some five years ago, so we are thrilled to finally have him here”

Ingrid Leary, British Council Country Director
