Outdoor Theatre: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Join us for a summer evening of theatre on the Vista and enjoy Duke’s Theatre Company's new adaptation of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

  • Booking essential

This original production for Summer 2022 features live music, beautiful design and theatrical magic. It promises to delight audiences with Shakespeare’s most celebrated and comic fairy tale.

Oberon and Titania’s marital mayhem unleashes chaos on four young lovers with disastrous - and hilarious - consequences. Deep in the forest, a troupe of aspiring actors prepare for the most important night of their lives - a command performance before the Duke and Duchess.

As the King and Queen of the Fairy Kingdom become entwined with the human world, a night of madness, music and magic ensues...

(don’t forget the donkey!)

Early booking advised for this live, outdoor event to be enjoyed by the whole family.

Bring along blankets and chairs, settle down and enjoy the surroundings from 1 hour before the performance, during which time picnics are encouraged.
