‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences. 

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom. 

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is also playing on-stage at the Bridge Theatre in London from 3 June - 31 August 2019. Click here for more information.

Founded by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr the Bridge Theatre focuses on the commissioning and production of new shows, as well as staging the occasional classic.

The new 900-seat adaptable auditorium is designed to answer the needs of contemporary audiences and theatre-makers and is the first wholly new theatre of scale to be added to London’s commercial theatre sector in 80 years. Find out more here.
