Midsummer Mechanicals

28 July 2022 to 21 August 2022 Shakespeare’s Globe (Sam Wanamaker Playhouse)

On a beautiful summer’s evening one year ago, a band of craftspeople-turned-actors, led by Nick Bottom, staged their first ever play. It was so bold, so brilliant and so chaotic that it went down in theatre history.

Now these Mechanicals are back to premiere their latest tragical, magical masterpiece, and with half an hour to go until curtain-up, everything is in hand. The actors are (almost) assembled, the play is (nearly) rehearsed, and the audience (that’s you!) are ready. What could possibly go wrong? Everything, it turns out.

Join us for side-splitting fun and mayhem as the Mechanicals create their second play – with your help! Packed with silly props, sillier costumes and an eye-popping finale, this theatrical dream like no other will delight the young and the young at heart alike.

Recommended for ages 5+

Tickets £15 - £25
