CANCELLED A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Join Shakespeare’s Globe on Tour for a magical evening at the Major Oak.
Four brawling lovers, caught in a dispute of magical proportions; a crew of keen mechanicals, determined to give it their all; and one roguish sprite, hell-bent on causing as much havoc as possible… What could possibly go wrong?
Exploding with dramatic poetry, mischief and merriment, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare’s amazingly inventive play, whose serious and dark undercurrent cuts starkly through the hilarity making its dreamlike surface deeply rich and all the more memorable.
Please bring picnic blankets and dress for an outdoor performance.
From our partners at Shakespeare’s Globe,
‘We hope you understand it has been difficult for us to decide how to navigate our way forwards during this unprecedented time. It has been overwhelming to see all of your messages of support, and everyone here at the Globe is truly grateful to see all the love for our wooden O. Shakespeare’s Globe has taken the difficult decision to close our doors to the public until further notice, ceasing performances, education activities and tours. As you can imagine this has been one of the hardest decisions we have had to make, but a necessary one as we consider the safety and wellbeing both of the public staff and volunteers. Whilst our doors are closed. our hearts, minds and imaginations are very much open, and we are finding and creating ways to stay connected and hopeful with you. “
