About A Midsummer Night’s Dream
- Year Released:
- 2K DCP
- Directed by Nicholas Hytner
A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities, and transformations … with hilarious, but dark consequences. Gwendoline Christie, Oliver Chris, David Moorst, and Hammed Animashaun lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck, and Bottom. Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest—a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs, and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot. Contains mature content.
