Move between dimensions with these four powerful characters as they try to heal the chaos of love via Fairyland, the Forest, and the Palace’s thinly veiled layers of existence. Offering a comedy full of truth, love, joy, colour, expansion and expression. It invites us to run full-speed towards what we love.

Our adaptation tells the full story using only four characters – Titania-Helena, Oberon-Demetrius, Peaseblossom-Hermia and Puck-Lysander.

What we can bring:
  • Our critically acclaimed touring production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, full-blown, full-scale, full of heart.
  • The cast of four professional actors, plus our sound technician, bring the unforgettable experience of our open-air touring shows directly to your school. Running time: 90 minutes plus Q+A.
  • Our interpretations of these plays tell the story with only four characters, giving students a rich understanding of the heart of these plays, while also inviting both comparison to the original and to other prescribed texts, and inviting discussion of the process of adapting Shakespeare for contemporary audiences.

  • Students receive a holistic experience of listening, watching, and engaging with an acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, with all of the production values of our touring show.
