A Bridge Theatre production

by William Shakespeare

"The course of true love never did run smooth."

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. 

"Five stars might not be enough." - Observer

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy is captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, One Man, Two Guvnors, Twelfth Night, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (Barber Shop Chronicles, "Master Harold"… and the boys) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.

"Deserves to be talked about for years to come."Daily Telegraph

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream saw the Bridge Theatre become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.
