On 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.Performers Samantha Spiro (Titania/Hippolyta), Orlando Wells (Demetrius), Ray Fearon (Oberon/Theseus), Lee Boardman (Bottom), Peter Bygott (Egeus), Lisa Ellis (Hermia), Ben Turner (Lysander), Nancy Carroll (Helena), James Tucker (Quince/Moth), Steven Webb (Flute/Mustardseed), David Fairweather (Starveling/Cobweb), Mark Hilton (Snout/Peaseblossom), Stuart Burt (Snug/Fariy), Dylan Brown (Puck/Philostrate).
