What is currently on at Playhouse (V923)

A Midsummer Night's Dream

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.

Production details

A 'radical' new version which transposes the action to 1960s Hollywood. The production sets the popular Shakespeare comedy on a 'a glamour-filled' movie set, where Hippolyta’s turbulent off-screen relationship with her co-star Theseus is fast becoming the love-hate relationship of the century - and it’s not the only romance to have blossomed on set.
