The Globe’s summer season opens with Elle While’s revival of Shakespeare’s play of disruptions and transformation. The major draw here is undoubtedly the fact that Michelle Terry will play Puck in what should be a magical evening and your only chance to see Dream in London this summer. Terry’s support of female directors is evident in a season that also includes Abigail Graham’s staging of Macbeth and Ellen McDougall tackling As You Like It. If they don’t take your fancy, then look out for Sean Holmes’ Comedy of Errors, the original mistaken identity comedy that, when done with elan, is a hoot.

About A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Join the revellers this Summer as mother nature envelops the Globe Theatre for Shakespeare’s deliciously disruptive and intoxicating comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream. On Midsummer’s eve, four rebellious young lovers, a band of ambitious artisan players, and a feuding Fairy King and Queen all cross paths in a riotously enchanted forest. When the devilish shapeshifting, mischief-making Puck, the Fairy King’s servant, is ordered to cast spells on everyone, what could possibly go wrong? All hell breaks loose as nature, and human nature, are turned upside down and inside out; the forest’s new inhabitants are in for a wild and unsettling night of love, jealousy and utter confusion… but once the nightmare is over, will life be a dream again by morning? Content guidance: The play contains language of violence, sexual references, misogyny and racism. PLEASE NOTE: This is a roofless (open air) theatre. Performances go ahead in all conditions so dress for the weather!
