Direction is by Nicholas Hytner, design byBunny Christie, costume by Christina Cunningham, lighting by Bruno Poet and sound by Paul Arditti. Joining the team will be composer Grant Olding and movement director Arlene Phillips.

A Midsummer Night's Dream runs at the Bridge Theatre from 3 June - 31 August 2019 and has its opening night on Tuesday 11 June 2019. Evening performances are Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm with weekday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm.
