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 meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.
Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured 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 will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.
Star of Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, Josh (BBC3) and co-writer and star of Radio 4’s Small Scenes, Henry’s latest show is a unique mixture of stand-up comedy and illustration which took the Edinburgh Fringe by storm.
A delightfully twisty and turny hour in which Henry uses cartoons to tell a story about a lonely man who lives in a forest in a house full of clocks, alongside delivering stand-up routines about marriage, commuting and dark chocolate. Somewhere between a graphic novel, a stand-up show and a fairy tale.
