It’s Midsummer’s night and the students of Athens High are getting ready for a party. Young Demetrius is about to be crowned prom king with his queen-to-be (he hopes) Hermia. Only problem is, she’s in love with someone else…
Fleeing her homecoming throne, Hermia escapes to the forest where new mysteries await her. A feuding fairy King and Queen plot revenge, a band of travelling misfits prepare for their latest performance whilst a magical trickster pursues mischief.
Expect enchantments, merriment, 90s throwbacks (think She's The Man and 10 Things I Hate About You!) and love triangles aplenty in this hilarious romp through the gardens of the stunning Actors Church in Central London. Can love really conquer all?
