As part of the Shakespeare anniversary celebrations, The Royal Shakespeare Company have undertaken a nationwide tour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this production combines eighteen Royal Shakespeare Company  professional actors and fourteen amateur theatre companies from around the UK, selected to play Bottom and the Mechanicals. In London, members of Tower Theatre Company perform these popular roles.

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the mischievous arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule.

With a feuding Fairy King and Queen, Quince and his friends presenting their play within a play, and chief mischief-maker Puck on hand, games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.

Directed by Erica Whyman

Running time approx. 2 hours 35 mins including a 20 min interval

Suitable for all ages
