A Midsummer Night's Dream archiveOn a midsummer's night Hermia and her lover Lysander flee from Athens and Demetrius - the man Hermia's father favours as a son-in-law. Demetrius follows, pursued by Helena who loves him in spite of being spurned in favour of Hermia. On the same night Bottom and his friends leave Athens to find somewhere quiet to rehearse their play which is to be performed at the wedding feast of Duke Theseus. Drawn into the woods they enter a world of magic, mystery and wonder.

USER (07Jul04): that's good
Arts Archive (28Jun04): An excellent production with Russ Abbot giving a wonderful performance as Bottom, and the transformation of his head was great. Great performances from Christopher Godwin, Oliver Beamish, Mark Hilton, and Keith Dunphy all showing stage presence.
