Emma Rice’s first production as Artistic Director at the Globe is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. With its music, dance and comedy it promises to be a lively beginning in the Globe’s unique setting.
The story takes place in the woods outside Athens and finds four runaway lovers 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.
