A Midsummer Night's Dream (2021)
Our colourful, chaotic and 'utterly joyous' (Time Out) production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream was praised by critics and audiences alike in both 2019 and 2021. Experience the fiesta once again on Globe Player!
‘I have had a most rare vision. I had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.’
Our joyful explosion of vivid chaos welcomes you back to our wooden ‘O’ with direction by Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes and music from Jim Fortune, performed by members of the Hackney Colliery Band.
Audio Description available for this production.
Four love-drunk teens, escaped from the confines of an oppressive regime, caught in a dispute of increasingly magical proportions. A posse of wannabe actors, determined to put on a play against the odds. The Fairy Queen and King at war, and one wild spirit hell-bent on causing as much havoc as possible. What could possibly go wrong?
