CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
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 Paul Bradley (Bottom), Harry Burton (Oberon/Theseus), Nicola Redmond (Titania/Hippolyta), Paul Kemp, John Conroy, Sally Hawkins, Tam Williams, Chris Larkin, Sarah Tansey, Timothy Kightley, Craig Parkinson, Paul Kissaun, Giles Taylor, Michael Medwin, Fiona Dunn, Sara Hillier, Joanne Redman, Tim Godwin, Thomas Aaron, Nigel Harman, Jared Aggarwal, Alim Hirji.
