In this ever-popular comedy, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a company of hapless actors and malicious sprites cross paths with the King and Queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute. Audiences will be transported to a tainted supernatural forest overflowing with possibilities where the unexplainable magic of falling in love – and the marvel of waking up from the sweetest of dreams – is discovered.
Chaos, confusion, trickery and skullduggery reign in this fresh, joyful, accessible and memorable interpretation of the Shakespeare’s most loved comedy. The beautiful setting of Cannizaro Park will once again provide us with a stunning backdrop for this year’s open-air performances, continuing Mayhem’s popular summer tradition of bringing the Bard to South London.
