A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Shakespeare's Globe · 30 APR - 10 SEP

Gentles, perchance you wonder at this show. But wonder on, till ’truth make all things plain.

Overview

My! The woods outside Athens are a busy place on this magical night! 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?

Critic reviews

A bundle of happy surprises...a Dream for the Glastonbury generation

Daily Mail

A bloody joy, ravishing, engrossing and laugh out loud funny... Shakespeare, taken to his gloriously anarchic max

Time Out

A glory...disruptive, unnerving, highly comic...It rocks

Observer

Joyful...cabaret artist Meow Meow...plays Titania with all the verve and irreverence you'd expect
