Mayhem Theatre Company
Mayhem Theatre Company returns to Wimbledon following previous sell out productions of Romeo & Juliet, Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing and A Midsummer Night's Dream with a magical new production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream".
In this ever-popular comedy, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a company of hapless actors and malicious sprites cross paths with the King and Queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute. Audiences will be transported to a tainted supernatural forest overflowing with possibilities where the unexplainable magic of falling in love – and the marvel of waking up from the sweetest of dreams – is discovered. Chaos, confusion, trickery and skullduggery reign in this fresh, joyful, accessible and memorable interpretation of Shakespeare’s most loved comedy.
The beautiful setting of Cannizaro Park will once again provide us with a stunning backdrop for this year’s open-air performances (this year performed in the round with amplified sound) and will continue Mayhem’s popular summer tradition of bringing the Bard to South London.
