The Globe’s joyous, smash-hit production returns to London this Summer
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.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream tickets at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre London are available to book for performances up to 30 October 2021.
What isA Midsummer Night’s Dream about?
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?
