‘The course of true love never did run smooth’
Act I, scene 1


Four sparring lovers take refuge in the woods, only to find themselves in the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies. With the roguish Puck causing havoc, what could possibly go wrong?

Shakespeare’s evergreen comedy is a tale of order and chaos, love and fantasy. It glitters with dramatic poetry and is full of mischief, misunderstanding and merriment. Join us as we continue our summer-long journey to discover ‘the merry wanderer’ in us all.
