A Midsummer Night's Dream [2014]

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Paula Garfield

Part of the 2014 Globe to Globe, and performed in British Sign Language by Deafinitely Theatre.

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 walk into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies.

A teasing, glittering, very funny and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.
