Get ready for a fiesta like no other! The Globe’s ★★★★ (The Times, The Stage) raucous 2019 production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream returns with piñatas, streamers, glitter and a cacophony of brass.
This joyful explosion of vivid chaos welcomes you back to the wooden ‘O’ with direction by Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes and music from Jim Fortune, performed by members of the Hackney Colliery Band.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Twelfth Night will be created and performed by the same ensemble. This production is specially made to be enjoyed by young and old alike.
I have had a most rare vision. I had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.
— Act IV, scene 1
A Midsummer Night’s Dream will run from 19 May 2021 until 30 October 2021 at Shakespeare’s Globe, London.
What’s the Story?
Four love-drunk teens, escaped from the confines of an oppressive regime, caught in a dispute of increasingly magical proportions. A posse of wannabe actors, determined to put on a play against the odds. The Fairy Queen and King at war, and one wild spirit hell-bent on causing as much havoc as possible.
What could possibly go wrong?
