Why See A Midsummer Night's Dream?
Though She Be But Litte, She Is Fierce!
'Tis the season for Shakespeare as Dominic Hill heads to the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre to direct a brand new production of the Shakespearian classic, A Midsummer Night's Dream. As one of the Bard's greatest comedies, A Midsummer Night's Dream blends magic with mischief to create a legendary comedy, perfect for new-comers and die-hard Shakespeare fans alike.
Following four lovers as they head into a mystical and magical forest where fairies play in the shadows and all is not as it seems, A Midsummer Night's Dream explores desire, confusion, jealousy and growing-up. With a string of sub-plots, mistaken identities and one donkey, this Shakespearian classic gets a 2019 twist with live music in a stunning outdoor setting.
