Four young men tour around England on bicycles and perform “A Midsummer Night´s Dream“ in the evenings. Props, stage design and costumes – they have it all with them. That explains their name: just add a “d“ to “HandleBars“ and you get a homage to Shakespeare (“The Bard“). With a passion for acting and a lack of the poetically romantic midsummer night´s magic, Shakespeare´s most steadfast comedy is brought to life, including its background story, the Mechanicals, Tatania, Puck and the four lovers – how the company manages to do so with four people is a mystery. Either way, it is a bundle of laughs for young people and the young at heart, even if the HandleBards aren´t travelling to Neuss by bicycle....
