The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, the UK’s premier all male
theatre company, invite you to join them this summer to
celebrate their 15th year with Shakespeare’s enchanting
comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
“Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
To honour Duke Theseus’ wedding, a group of rustic artisans,
and would-be thespians, rehearse a play. Meanwhile, feuding
lovers flee the city and seek solace in an enchanted forest
alive with warring fairies and the meddling sprite Puck. As the
clash between the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania,
catches everyone in its cross-fire, confusion abounds and
makes asses of them all.
“The course of true love never did run smooth.”
This supernatural comedy of mischievous fairies, confused
lovers and rude mechanicals is an intoxicating tale of clarity
found from chaos as tangled love gives way to happily ever
Bring a chair and a picnic, and enjoy a glorious summer’s
evening watching one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies.
Performed in the open air, by an all male cast with
Elizabethan costumes, music and dance. This is undoubtedly
one of the hottest tickets of the summer; book early to avoid
