A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Date: 20 May 2019

Sport For Jove’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream unlocks the deeper ideas that make this one of Shakespeare’s most sophisticated plays.

In the heat of the shortest night of the year, young lovers and work-a-day dreamers plunge into a world between sleep and waking, where “everything seems double”.

One of Shakespeare’s truly essential works, Dream warns us that family, love and friendship are fragile.

Damian Ryan directs.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream also plays the Joan, Penrith, June 14-15 and returns to the Seymour, August 7-9.
