NT Live presents
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S
by William Shakespeare
directed by Nicholas Hytner
Recorded live from the Bridge Theatre
Thursday 17th October
Show starts at 7:00 pm
Doors open 6:30 pm, show starts 7:00pm.
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.
