About A Midsummer Night's Dream

A riotous and magical outdoor production of Shakespeare’s most famous comedy, with a lots of opportunities for the community to get involved. Family Friendly! The East London Shakespeare Festival (ELSF) is a new festival and theatre event merging the contemporary culture of East London with the wonderful storytelling of Shakespeare’s plays in outdoor parks and community spaces across East London. Supported by Arts Council England, ELSF is launching with its inaugural production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, a riotous outdoor production of Shakespeare’s most famous play, combining the wonderful storytelling of the Bard with a flavour of East London culture. Pure, unadulterated escapism, with live music, showstopper numbers in lovely outdoor settings. This is not traditional outdoor Shakespeare – it is performed in non-theatrical community spaces, with community at its heart, seeking inspiration from the diverse cultures of East London. BYO Picnics welcome: gates open an hour before the show, so bring a picnic, soak up the atmosphere. For younger members of the audience (3+), you can also take part in a pre-show ‘flower-fairy’ headband making workshops run by cast members.
