A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Devonshire Park Theatre | Thursday 17 March 2016 to Friday 18 March 2016

A Midsummer Nights Dream

The most talked-about new Shakespeare company in the UK, Merely Theatre has honed a style that strips the Bard back to basics – no gauche sets, frilly collars or fussy props:  just the actors, the audience and the text.  Now the company are stripping back something more profound: the concept of gender.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream playfully depicts the comically intertwining tales of feuding forest gods, midnight elopements and staging a theatre show. This energetic, 90 minute production of Shakespeare’s most popular comedy stays true to Shakespeare’s text while presenting it in an exuberant and stripped back style.

The Taming of the Shrew


Sparks are guaranteed to fly in Shakespeare’s rumbustious battle-of-the-sexes comedy, where nobody is exactly who they appear to be!
Illyria has been touring nationally and internationally since 1992, and is most widely celebrated for its productions of Shakespeare’s comedies.
So if you’re looking for a rip-roaring performance of a controversial Elizabethan comedy to tickle you on a summer’s evening, look no further. Bring a picnic and bring a second pair of socks – you’ll laugh the first ones off!
