The Watermill Ensemble return following the success of Twelfth Night at Wilton’s in 2018.
Fizzing with magic and a large dose of chaos in the enchanted Athenian woods, secrets, love and mistaken identities collide in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Fusing actor musicianship with one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, the Watermill Ensemble cast their spell performing the intoxicating soulful sounds of Nina Simone and Billie Holiday live on stage.
The Watermill Theatre is a regional producing theatre touring work across the UK. Recent touring productions include The Wipers Times, Crazy For You and Amélie.
The Watermill Ensemble was formed in 2017 and has developed a unique approach to Shakespeare, touring to thousands of people in the UK and internationally.
A Midsummer Night's Dream is performed in repertory with Watermill Theatre's Macbeth (22nd January 2020 – 8th February 2020).
This vivacious and entertaining production walks the fine line between tradition and innovation perfectly
