‘love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences’

‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ presented in high definition from London

ROCKLAND — A captured-live high definition broadcast of A Midsummer Night’s Dream from London’s National Theatre will be presented on Thursday, Oct. 24 at the Strand Theatre. Show times are 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

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.

In the story, 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.

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.

Running time: 2 hours 40 min., including one intermission.

Tickets: $12.50/General Admission, $10.50/Strand Members. To buy tickets, or for more information, visit www.rocklandstrand.com. Tel: (207) 594-0070 EX 3  Email: info@rocklandstrand.com
