DESCRIPTION:

“Could be the most joyously affirmative Shakespeare production I’ve ever seen.” Metro

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy is captured live from London’s Bridge Theatre. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream builds on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar as the theatre becomes a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels.
