A Midsummer Night's Dream

Join the revellers as mother nature envelops the Globe Theatre for Shakespeare’s deliciously disruptive and intoxicating comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream.


On Midsummer’s eve, four rebellious young lovers, a band of ambitious artisan players and a feuding Fairy King and Queen, all cross paths in a riotously enchanted forest. When the devilish shapeshifting, mischief-making Puck, the Fairy King’s servant, is ordered to cast spells on everyone, what could possibly go wrong?


All hell breaks loose as nature, and human nature, are turned upside down and inside out; the forest’s new inhabitants are in for a wild and unsettling night of love, jealousy and utter confusion… but once the nightmare is over, will life be a dream again by morning?


Directed by Pentabus Theatre’s Artistic Director Elle While (The Merry Wives of Windsor, 2019; As You Like It & Hamlet, 2018), with Shakespeare's Globe's Artistic Director Michelle Terry as Puck.


‘So quick bright things come to confusion’

    This was a really wonderful staging of Midsummer Night's Dream. I enjoyed how they played the faeries, and Titania and Bottom's scenes in particular were so much fun.

    Absolutely fabulous, we loved the whole experience.. starting off with the warm welcome by globe staff, then seeing the exciting design of the theatre, feeling the great atmosphere and of course, most importantly, watching the talented actors that gave such energetic and enchanting performances. What a great production, super evening.
