Next Week: Midsummer Night's Dream at Royal Observatory

Quantum Theatre presents a brand new production of Shakespeare's most enduringly popular play of love and intrigue, magic and celebration set on that most dangerous of nights when fairies are abroad and nothing is as it seems….

It is thought that 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' was written originally to be performed outdoors for a private wedding party and indeed it lends itself perfectly to an open air setting. Using not just the stage but the surrounding greenery Quantum Theatre's brand new production presents the play as a flight of magical fancy, with willow-the-wisp fairies, unsuspecting artisans and ardent young lovers woven together by the finest gossamer thread: "I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was…"

Performances will include a 20 minute interval. Do bring warm clothes, a folding chair or rug. Picnics welcome but no glassware please. Performance is suitable for all ages.
