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 Summer Strallen (Helena), Steven Pacey (Oberon), Sirine Saba (Titania), John Hodgkinson (Bottom), Sheridan Smith (Hermia), Timothy Kightley (Quince), Dominic Marsh (Lysander), Michael Medwin (Starveling), Thomas Aldridge (Fairy), James Bisp (Fairy), David Burrows (Snout), Gerard Carey (Puck), Selina Chilton (1st Fairy), Leo Conville (Snug), Matthew Dempsey (Fairy), Hayley Flaherty (Fairy), Andrew Melville (Egeus), Stuart Nurse (Philostrate), Helen Owen (Fairy), David Partridge (Demetrius), Michael Rouse (Flute), James Wallace (Theseus), Billie-Claire Wright (Hippolyta).
