Get ready for a fiesta like no other as our ★★★★ (The i, The Stage) raucous 2019 production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream returns with piñatas, streamers, glitter and a cacophony of brass for our Summer 2021 season and will be live streamed from the Globe Theatre and you can watch from home.

Four love-drunk teens, escaped from the confines of an oppressive regime, caught in a dispute of increasingly magical proportions. A posse of wannabe actors, determined to put on a play against the odds. The Fairy Queen and King at war, and one wild spirit hell-bent on causing as much havoc as possible. What could possibly go wrong?

Get ready for a fiesta like no other. This joyful explosion of vivid chaos welcomes you back to our wooden ‘O’ with various live performances dates from May to October – with the performance on 25 September being live streamed to the world.

Live stream ticket prices start at just £5 per household with an option to donate on top.

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