Take delight in Shakespeare’s deliciously disruptive comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream this April.

The evenings will soon be getting longer, so why not join the revellers as mother nature envelops the Globe Theatre for the wonerfully intoxicating, A Midsummer Night’s Dream....

On Midsummer’s eve, four rebellious young lovers, a band of ambitious artisan players, and a feuding Fairy King and Queen all cross paths in a riotously enchanted forest. When the devilish shapeshifting, mischief-making Puck, the Fairy King’s servant, is ordered to cast spells on everyone, what could possibly go wrong? All hell breaks loose as nature, and human nature, are turned upside down and inside out; the forest’s new inhabitants are in for a wild and unsettling night of love, jealousy and utter confusion… but once the nightmare is over, will life be a dream again by morning?

Directed by Pentabus Theatre’s Artistic Director Elle While (The Merry Wives of Windsor, 2019; As You Like It & Hamlet, 2018) and featuring Shakespeare’s Globe’s Artistic Director Michelle Terry as Puck.
