A Midsummer Night's Dream (2014)

by William Shakespeare
Opening Night 24 July 2014
Director: Dale Neill

All manner of magical goings on will break loose on the Globe stage on Thursday 24 July when Shakespeare’s most loved comedy begins a nine- performance season. The mortal world of Dukes and Amazons, young lovers, and of a group of ham-acting tradesmen collides with the fairy sphere ruled by King Oberon and Queen Titania. But the fairy monarchs of the forest are having a right royal bust-up, and this sets off a chaotic chain of comic events that has enchanted audiences for over 400 years.
