by William Shakespeare
For their fifth annual production, the Theatre Royal Shakespeare Players are delighted to present A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare’s best-loved comedy.
The play opens in the ancient city of Athens, where the ruler, Duke Theseus, is about to hold a lavish, four-day wedding celebration. But this is a play in which the path of true love runs anything but smooth…
Outside the city walls, an enchanted forest is criss-crossed by a warring Fairy King and Queen, two pairs of argumentative lovers and a group of amateur actors who are trying to rehearse a play. The Fairy King’s mischievous servant Puck plays tricks on everyone and three worlds collide – with spectacular results!
