A Midsummer Night's Dream (Open Air)

Forbidden love at the heart of a gypsy community brings danger on a midsummer’s night. As the lovers escape, mischief and sensual seduction ensue in a confusion of worlds real and unreal. Featuring the Open Air Theatre’s celebrated fusion of original music, movement and unique setting, this big fat gypsy telling of Shakespeare’s comedic tale is set to be one of the theatrical highlights of the year.
