"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 recorded live at the Bridge Theatre. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, Young Marx), David Moorst (Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom. 

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production builds on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar as The Bridge Theatre becomes a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.
