A Midsummer Night's Dream [2014]

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Dominic Dromgoole

Our production from our 2013 season returned to the stage to perform at the Rose Theatre, Kingston & Aylesbury Waterside Theatre before embarking on a tour to Asia & Russia.

Join Shakespeare’s famous lovers as they take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies.

Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia… When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies.

Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.

This production employed Renaissance costumes and staging.
