Oberon and Titania, King and Queen of the fairies, are not getting along and the whole forest is in a frenzy. Caught in the middle are four runaway lovers, a group of amateur actors and Oberon’s not-so-trusty helper, Puck! With magic and mischief round every turn (including more than one love potion, and a very silly donkey) there’s a lot of fun to be had!

Join our Globe storytellers for a true Shakespearean comedy guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Learn about the plot, characters and language of A Midsummer Night’s Dream through active participation and play.
