Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream.
It’s Midsummer’s night and the ancient city of Athens is overjoyed that young nobleman Demetrius is set to marry his bride Hermia. Only problem is, she’s in love with someone else…
Fleeing her impending nuptials, Hermia escapes to the forest where new mysteries await her. A feuding fairy King and Queen plot revenge, a band of travelling misfit actors prepare for their latest show whilst a magical trickster pursues mischief.
Expect enchantments, merriment and love triangles aplenty in this hilarious romp through the gardens of the stunning Actors' Church in Central London. Can love really conquer all?
