NT LIVE: A Midsummer Night’s Dream
October 17 @ 19:00pm - 22:00pm£8 – £12
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
by William Shakespeare
‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’
★★★★★“Could be the most joyously affirmative Shakespeare production I’ve ever seen.” Metro
★★★★★“Five stars might not be enough.” Observer
A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.
★★★★★“Deserves to be talked about for years to come.”Daily Telegraph
★★★★★“The sense of mischief spreads like a giant smile.”Evening Standard
★★★★“Spectacular. Christie’s Titania calls the shots.” The Times
Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.
Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.
