Event Navigation

One of Shakespeare’s funniest and most delightful comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a riot of criss-crossed love and feuding fairies, with clod-hopping amateur actors and a magical potion adding to the mayhem.

In Athens, Hermia is in love with Lysander, and Helena is in love with Demetrius. But Hermia’s father insists that his daughter marry Demetrius. Hermia and Lysander decide to elope, confiding in Helena who in turn tells Demetrius, hoping that her honesty will win his heart. That night all four set out into the wood near Athens, where the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, are arguing.

When Oberon decides to resolve matters by using the juice of a magic flower, much confusion, mistaken identity and comedy ensues.

Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre is a pop-up replica Elizabethan theatre built next to Clifford’s Tower. It is set within an Elizabethan village.
