A Midsummer
Night's
Dream

William Shakespeare

15th - 26th May 2018

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves entranced and entrapped in an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule.


“I have had a most rare vision. I had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was…”


Shakespeare’s best loved comedy comes to the stage in this all-new ensemble production. Through the use of text, music, movement, puppetry and song this production promises to be a fantastic first introduction to Shakespeare for any age.


A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the third production in our year-long residency at The Greenwich Theatre after the return of our ★★★★★ production of Edward II in January and our new ensemble production of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies in March 2018.


A Midsummer Night's Dream is produced in association with Greenwich Theatre and is based on our 2012 production which played at The Blue Elephant Theatre.

★★★★★ “An epic battle of the sexes to a modern upbeat soundtrack, donned with face glitter and wellies… I cannot recommend this production enough”

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was baptised on 26 April 1564 at Holy Trinity in Stratford-Upon-Avon. Traditionally his birthday is celebrated three days earlier, on 23 April, St George's Day.

In 1594, Shakespeare became a founding member, actor, playwright and shareholder of the Lord Chamberlain's Men. Richard Burbage was the company's leading actor. He played roles such as Richard III, Hamlet, Othello and Lear. Under James VI/I, the company was renamed The King's Men. They performed at court more often than any other company.


In 1623, seven years after Shakespeare's death, John Heminge and Henry Condell (two actors from The King's Company) had Shakespeare's plays published by William Jaggard and his son, Isaac. This first folio contained 36 plays and sold for £1.

 “A majestic production that I believe does justice to this much loved classic”
