The Abbey Shakespeare Players were founded in 1987 by Ian Wood, Richard Carwardine and Clive Burgess. Our first production was Twelfth Night. We have staged an outdoor Shakespeare production every summer since then apart from during the pandemic in 2020.

A Midsummer Night's Dream in 2023 will be our 36th summer performance in St Dogmaels Abbey. Sign up to our mailing list to be notified of future productions.
