Shakespeare's tale of turbulent love lives and interfering fairies, A Midsummer Night's Dream returns to the Regent's Park Open Air theatre.
Forbidden love at the heart of a gypsy community brings danger on a midsummer’s night. As the lovers escape, mischief and sensual seduction ensue in a confusion of worlds real and unreal.
A perennial favourite at the theatre in the park, A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Shakespeare's best known, and best loved, comedies. Its mixture of confused lovers, enchantment and a man with the head of an ass endearing it to many a theatregoer.
