Part of Streamdoor: theatre you can watch from home

“From Shakespeare’s Globe in London, this is the final night of the Bollywood-infused Shakespeare comedy which has wowed critics and played to sold-out audiences.”

Overview

The show is introduced by actress Meera Syal and is the first time any production has been live streamed from the Bankside venue.

Four runaway lovers find themselves smack bang in the middle of a dispute between the King and Queen of the fairies, and, as if that wasn’t enough, a troupe of amateur actors are trying to rehearse a play. Between these unlikely groups flies Puck, armed only with a wicked sense of humour and a love potion capable of making anyone fall for the first person they set eyes upon. What could possibly go wrong?

Fusing music, dance and some serious comedy, Emma Rice’s first production as Artistic Director brings the Dream crashing into the Globe’s magical setting. Naughty, tender, transgressive and surprising, it promises to be a festival of theatre.
