About A Midsummer Night's Dream - Barbican

Experience a 'ravishing fusion of flamboyancy and fun' (Guardian) in the RSC’s smash-hit sell-out production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, transferring to London’s Barbican from 3 December.

With Mathew Baynton (Ghosts, Horrible Histories) as Bottom, this hilarious production of Shakespeare’s captivating comedy will transport you from deepest midwinter to the most magical of midsummer nights. As four young lovers are faced with the prospect of unhappy marriage or worse, they flee the court of Athens and stumble into an enchanted forest, where the real and fairy worlds collide.

Director Eleanor Rhode returns to the RSC with a 'joyous' (Times) Dream that is magical, mischievous and full of wonder.
