Discover more about the mischievous world of Shakespeare’s fairies and delve deeper into our 2023 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with this interactive Study Day.

Spend an afternoon with expert academics and researchers and explore the themes and characters of the play through a series of talks and discussions. You’ll learn more about the historical and cultural context in which it was written and understand how one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies has been brought to life on stage.

You’ll end the day with a Q&A with members of the acting company of our 2023 production, giving you the chance to ask questions and gain further insight into this summer’s show.

This study day can be enjoyed on its own but is also a perfect introduction to our production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. End your day of Shakespeare exploration with a ticket to the evening performance following the study day. Tickets for the performance are not included in the study day ticket price and must be purchased separately.
