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 Amanda Harris (Titania), Joe Dixon (Oberon), Malcolm Storry (Bottom), Trystan Gravelle (Lysander), Oscar Pearce (Demetrius), Sinead Keenan (Hermia), Caitlin Mottram (Helena), Peter Bankole (Fairy), Alice Barclay (Fairy), Paul Chahidi (Quince), Edward Clayton (Snug), Tom Hodgkins (Egeus), Bettrys Jones (1st Fairy), Geoffrey Lumb (Fairy), Chris McGill (Fairy), Miles Richardson (Theseus), David Rogers (Snout), Bridgitta Roy (Hippolyta), Jonathan Slinger (Puck), Patrick Waldron (Starveling), Jamie Ballard (Flute).
