Shakespeare for children with autism

A version of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream created for children with autism has opened in South-West London.

The Flute Theatre Company, which specialises in creating productions for young people with autism, says the aim is to encourage the audience to interact with the actors whilst exploring the play.

We met the cast during a final rehearsal.

The production runs at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond until the 28th October.
