The 1960s. A film studio, and the shooting of a Hollywood epic. Hippolyta's turbulent off-camera affair with her co-star Theseus is fast becoming the love-hate relationship of the century - and it's not the only romance to have blossomed on set. Passions rise. Tempers fray. And filming is almost complete.
Using video, movement and music this thrilling new production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' sets Shakespeare's funniest play at the centre of this magical whirlwind of passion and performance. Combining Shakespeare's original text with a cutting-edge production, 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' follows Headlong's critically-acclaimed production of 'King Lear' starring Pete Postlethwaite.
A co-production with The Nuffield, Southampton in association with Hull Truck.
