NT Live – A Midsummer Night’s Dream (12A)
Thu 17th Oct 2019
Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London, directed by Nicholas Hytner.
A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives, leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations…with hilarious, but dark consequences.
Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun |(The Barber Shop Chronicles), lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.
This production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of Nicholas Hytner’s immersive staging of Julius Casesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot. (3hr)
