Following the sell-out success of the 'The Tempest' in 2018, we are delighted to welcome the Lord Chamberlain's Men back to the garden of the St John's Lodge in The Regent's Park to give us an authentic and magical staging of Shakespeare's much-loved 'A Midsummer Night's Dream.'
A Midsummers Night's Dream: A brief plot synopsis...
Lovers at war flee to an enchanted forest alive with meddling fairies and sprites. Hoping for their true loves’ course to be set straight, instead they become further entangled and confused as they are caught in the cross fire of a fairy king and queen at odds. Meanwhile a bumbling group of artisans prepare a play to be presented as part of the Duke’s wedding celebration.
“Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
Founded in 2004, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men are the modern incarnation of Shakespeare’s original company of the same name. Performing with an all male cast, we present authentic, excellent and magical productions of Shakespeare’s finest plays bringing to vivid and accessible life the greatest works of drama, as they would first have been performed. Peter Stickney took over the company as Artistic Director and Chief Executive in 2016.
