By William Shakespeare
Director Peter Evans

Love is in the air in Athens – and it’s contagious. Hermia and Lysander are besotted with one another, while Helena adores Demetrius. The only snag is that Demetrius loves Hermia – and he’s got Hermia’s father on his side.

Determined to be together, Hermia and Lysander meet in a moonlit forest, with plans to elope. Hot on their heels is Demetrius, who in turn is pursued by a lovelorn Helena. But the young lovers are not alone in the forest. Nick Bottom and his hapless bunch of tradies have gathered to rehearse a play to be performed at the royal wedding. Hidden from human eyes, a mischievous sprinkling of fairies are also in the forest. The three worlds collide in an explosion of comic confusion, throwing the future of all the lovers into jeopardy.

This production is quick as a shadow. Fast, funny and family-friendly, this is A Midsummer Night’s Dream reimagined.
