A Midsummer Night's Dream at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

Don't miss this new production of Shakespeare's glorious comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream, in the perfect setting of Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.

Packed with humour, magic and fairies, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream remains a firm favourite among theatregoers.

A quartet of lovelorn young people takes to the woods where they encounter a pair of quarrelsome fairies. A sprinkling of magic dust creates comic consequences, particularly when a troupe of travelling players, including the unfortunate Bottom, stumbles into the mix.

The leafy environs of Regent's Park make the perfect setting for this tale of romance among the trees.

For their new production of Shakespeare's enduring comedy, directors Timothy Sheader and Liam Steel will be sprinkling some of their own magic dust on the woods of Regent's Park. The pair previously collaborated on acclaimed productions of The Crucible and Into The Woods.

A Midsummer Night's Dream plays in repertoire with the musical Ragtime, also directed by Sheader and Steel.

Last year's hit production from the Open Air Theatre, Crazy For You, is currently on stage at the Novello Theatre in the West End.
