Why See A Midsummer Night's Dream?
"HOW NOW, SPIRIT! WHITHER WANDER YOU?"
When the fairy King and Queen quarrel, no one is safe from their fervour, setting the scene for a witty and vibrant comedy of romance, mischief and magic that enchant audiences of all ages from the first line. Considered the finest of Shakespeare's comedies, join the Globe as they once again stage the wonderful world that is A Midsummer Night's Dream for summer 2019.
What fools these mortals be - The story of A Midsummer Night's Dream
Prepare to enter into a bustling forest at twilight, where King Oberon and Queen Titania are feuding again. In the wake of their domestic upheaval, all of the realm's supernatural beings are a flutter, enjoying the show. But when a band of mortal lovers enters the forest, following a troupe of actors looking for a space to rehearse, wires and wings really get crossed as the unwitting humans become yet more players in the game. Joyful, silly and filled with otherworldly beauty and merriment, if you're going to catch just one show at the historic venue this year, let it be this truly enchanting gem!
