CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's DreamT01648987787
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.

USER (07Jul04): that's good
Arts Archive (28Jun04): An excellent production with Russ Abbot giving a wonderful performance as Bottom, and the transformation of his head was great. Great performances from Christopher Godwin, Oliver Beamish, Mark Hilton, and Keith Dunphy all showing stage presence.
