A Midsummer Night's Dream

Globe Theatre
Book Now

Four brawling lovers, caught in a dispute of increasingly magical proportions; a crew of keen mechanicals, determined to give it their all; and one roguish sprite, hell-bent on causing as much havoc as possible… What could possibly go wrong?

Exploding with dramatic poetry, mischief and merriment, this new technicolour production of Shakespeare’s raucous comedy comes to vivid life in our ultra-live and magical wooden O.

The production will feature original music by Jim Fortune, performed by members of the Hackney Colliery Band.

I have had a most rare vision. I had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.

— Act 4, scene 1
