A Midsummer Night's Dream
Author(s): William Shakespeare
Company: Guildford Shakespeare Company
Running time: 2h 30min approx
“I have had a most rare vision. I had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.”
On Midsummer Eve, two pairs of young lovers elope into a magical forest. Amidst the trees and the stars, the King and Queen of the Fairies are at war.
Into this moonlit fairyland, a troupe of wannabe actors emerge pulling out all the stops to put on the show of their lives. All three collide when one mischievous sprite decides to go rogue…
Staged at Racks Close (As You Like It 2021, Robin Hood 2018), this former chalk quarry is now a wooded oasis, a stone’s throw from the High Street, and the town’s best-kept secret.
Directed by Abigail Anderson (Park Theatre London, Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds), who last worked with GSC in 2014 with The Canterbury Tales.
