The 2019 NYT REP Company present William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Shakespeare’s most popular comedy comes to the heart of London’s West End, directed by Matt Harrison working in association with Kneehigh.

Inventively and playfully staged and starring Britain’s best young talent from the 2019 NYT REP Company, this two-hour abridgement by Kate Kennedy promises to be a dream like no other.

Matt Harrison is a former National Theatre New Works Resident Director and Kate Kennedy is a graduate of the NYT REP Company and stared as Helena in BBC One’s 2016 A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

“Youth Theatre at its most mature and most thrilling” ★★★★ The Guardian on NYT’s The Fall directed by Matt Harrison in 2018.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream until 17 January 2020 at the Criterion Theatre, London.


In a shortened version of Shakespeare’s comedy, this new version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream captures the stories of mistaken identities, chaos and marriages a-plenty. As fairies and amateur actors co-exist in a one-of-a-kind forest, will the course of true love run smooth or will enchanting spells put a curse on proceedings?


The cast of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is completed by Guy Clark, Ella Dacres, Natalie Dunne, Jordan Ford Silver, Jamie Foulkes, Alice Franziska, Billy Hinchliff, Jadie Rose Hobson, Bede Hodgkinson, Tiwalade Ibirogba Olulode, Julia Kass, Sarah Lusack, Jemima Mayala, Joseph Payne, Sonny Poon Tip and Raj Singh.
