“All the story of the night told over and all their minds transfigured so together”
Four thwarted lovers seek to escape the confines of their restricted lives. Into the woods they go, only to find themselves unwittingly caught up in a long running feud between a fairy king and queen. Six trusty workers are off to the woods too – to rehearse a play to celebrate a royal marriage but it’s midsummer night - magic is abroad and anything can happen.
This Shakespeare classic is more than just a romantic fairytale. It’s a darkly comic fable where the rules of society no longer apply and dreams and desires are allowed free rein - just for one glorious midsummer night.
