Shakespeare’s most imaginative and merry play is set in an enchanted wood amidst fairies and sprites.

When Oberon, King of the Fairies, uses his magic upon four runaway lovers in a midsummer wood outside Athens, chaos ensues. Who really loves whom? Meanwhile, a band of well-meaning but bungling local actors have their rehearsal sabotaged by the mischievous Puck, who bewitches their leader, Bottom, and Titania, the Fairy Queen. The result is a lively and anarchic comedy which can only be resolved by an elaborate disentangling of spells.

Hermia is played by Amanda Root, Oberon by David Harewood, and Bottom by Roy Hudd.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Comedy…interwoven with pathos.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “Probably the most purely romantic of Shakespeare’s comedies. Although the magic of Puck explains the lovers’ erratic behavior, they are really responding to the essential capriciousness of young love in this pastoral romp that spoofs not only the vagaries of romance but the nature of reality itself.”

    Masterpieces of World Literature

  • “Has long been the the most popular of Shakespeare’s comedies.”

     Merriam Webster’s Encyclopedia of World Literature
