When fairies are abroad nothing is quite as it seems ...

Soak up the magical atmosphere at Scotney Castle with an evening of love, intrigue, mischance and marriage in Quantum Theatre's outdoor production of Shakespeare's classic comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Set on that most dangerous of nights when fairies are abroad and mischief is afoot, four unsuspecting young lovers become entangled in their magic and soon no mortal is safe in those bewitched and bewitching woods outside Athens.
