A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The ultimate expression of Shakespeare's theatrical trickery

“…methinks we sleep, we dream…” – in the heat of the shortest night of the year – midsummer night – young lovers and work-a-day dreamers plunge into a world between sleep and waking, where “everything seems double”.

One of Shakespeare’s truly essential works, 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.
