A Midsummer Night's Dream, Emma Rice's first production as Artistic Director, fuses music, dance and some serious comedy into the Globe's magical setting.
"Gentles, perchance you wonder at this show. But wonder on, till ’truth make all things plain."
My! The woods outside Athens are a busy place on this magical night! Four runaway lovers find themselves smack bang in the middle of a dispute between the King and Queen of the fairies, and, as if that wasn’t enough, a troupe of amateur actors are trying to rehearse a play. Between these unlikely groups flies Puck, armed only with a wicked sense of humour and a love potion capable of making anyone fall for the first person they set eyes upon. What could possibly go wrong?
Naughty, tender, transgressive and surprising, it promises to be a festival of theatre. Let the joy begin!
At Shakespeare's Globe Theatre from 30 April to 11 September 2016, book A Midsummer Night's Dream tickets today!
