A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By William Shakespeare
14 June 7.30pm, 15 June 2pm & 7.30pm

In the heat of the shortest night of the year – young lovers and work-a-day dreamers plunge into a world between sleep and waking, where “everything seems double” in the ultimate expression of Shakespeare's theatrical trickery; A Midsummer Night’s Dream, showing at The Joan on 14 & 15 June.

The tale follows four Athenian youths as they find themselves lost in a forest under the watchful eye of the fairy King, whose thirst for mischief leads to a series of trials, tribulations and trickery that will unhinge the different relationships between the four unsuspecting mortals - only to reward their suffering with new insight and deserved happiness – and many a laugh along the way.

One of Shakespeare’s truly essential works, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, like every fairy-story, warns us that family, love and friendship are fragile – when parents are selfish, their children break the rules; when love rears its head, friendships are forgotten; and that’s just the mortal world.

Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is perhaps the best possible introduction young people can have to the theatre and among the most powerful visions of growing up ever written; moving and full of extraordinary imagination.

This is Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before.
