Details

Enjoy a glorious summer evening watching one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies performed by the UK’s premier all male theatre company The Lord Chamberlain’s Men who invite you to join them to celebrate their 15th year with ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Performed by an all male cast with with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance, this supernatural comedy of mischievous fairies, confused lovers and rude mechanicals is an intoxicating tale of clarity found from chaos as tangled love gives way to happily ever afters. “Lord, what fools these mortals be!”

To honour Duke Theseus’ wedding, a group of rustic artisans, and would-be thespians, rehearse a play. Meanwhile, feuding lovers flee the city and seek solace in an enchanted forest alive with warring fairies and the meddling sprite Puck. As the clash between the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, catches everyone in its cross-fire, confusion abounds and makes asses of them all. “The course of true love never did run smooth.”
