Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Author(s): William Shakespeare
Company: Illyria
Running time: 2h 20min approx

Five couples—three human, one fairy, and one mythical—find their relationships sorely tested, intimately probed and indecently exposed when a troupe of amateur theatricals bumble into the forest to rehearse a play.

Shakespeare’s timeless comic masterpiece explores every colour in the spectrum of love, from arranged marriage to elopement, from infatuation to hatred, from chivalric devotion to raw sex. Add to this bawdy mix a heady brew of confusion, magic and mischief, and you have the most perfectly frothy comedy for a moonlit summer evening.
