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. In a world premiere created exclusively for Latitude, Sean Holmes and Filter theatre company present a new version of A Midsummer Nightâs Dream condensed into one magical hour. Well-known for their unique take on classic texts, with previous works including Three Sisters, Twelfth Night and Caucasian Chalk Circle, these former collaborators will be joined by the visionary band The London Snorkelling Team to create Shakespeare as youâve never seen it before.Performers Mark Benton, Jonathan Broadbent, Ollie Dimsdale, Clare Dunne, Ed Gaughan, John Lightbody, Poppy Miller, Ferdy Roberts, Gemma Saunders..
