Event Description

 


I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream—past the wit
of man to say what dream it was…
(Bottom, Act 4 Scene 1)


Dare to dream with us in a world beyond the wit of man. Join us for a journey into the extraordinary—where dreams and reality collide in our dystopian setting of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’


 


Under the brilliant direction of Fiona Ross, a renowned practitioner with over two decades of experience at the Royal Shakespeare Company, this production is set to be an immersive experience that will challenge and expand your perception of Shakespeare’s classic play.


 


In a dark and fragmented future, Shakespeare’s enchanting tale is reimagined in our dystopian vision of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ Our adaptation strips the original down to its core, creating a raw and intense experience that mirrors the chaos of a crumbling world.


 


Love becomes an act of rebellion, and laughter is a beacon of resilience in a world overshadowed by tyranny. Witness Athens transformed, where the union of Theseus and Hippolyta heralds a consolidation of power, not a celebration of love. Journey with our lovers, who embody the struggle against an oppressive family and regime, their quest for love mirroring the fight for freedom in a world that grants little or none.


 


Venture into a toxic wasteland where mutated fairies reign, reflecting nature’s wrath against human folly. Here, Oberon and Titania’s conflict transcends personal strife, echoing the more significant battle for control in a crumbling society. Find solace in the resilience of the Mechanicals, whose comedic endeavors shine as a testament to the enduring human spirit, even in the darkest times.


 


Join us for a night that mirrors our own world’s struggles and triumphs. Where shadows illuminate truths, laughter liberates, and dreams dare to defy the darkness. This isn’t just Shakespeare—it’s an invitation to witness the enduring power of love and resistance.


 


Reserve your journey into this transformative event. Be part of the dream that dares to defy the darkness.
