A Midsummer Night's Dream at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

About

There is no better way to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death than with one of his most inventive plays, A Midsummer Night's Dream, at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.

Four surreal plots intermingle in the unique setting of the reconstructed 16th-century open-air playhouse. A magical forest witnesses the adventures of four Athenian lovers as they run into a dispute between the queen and the king of the fairies.

Considered one of the most hilarious and unpredictable of Shakespeare’s plays, A Midsummer Night's Dream condenses humorous wit and psychological investigation under its unforgettable dreamlike surface.
