A Midsummer Night’s Dream

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddles with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities, and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy was filmed live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!), and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck, and Bottom.

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream builds on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (filmed live in 2018). The theatre becomes a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs, and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.

Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.
