Directed by Curve Associate Artist Nick Winston (Director Bugsy Malone, Choreographer Grease and Legally Blonde) and featuring a cast of 70 people aged 12 to 63, this epic reimagining brings aspiring actors together under the Made at Curve banner to present one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies.
‘The course of true love never did run smooth…’
Hermia loves Lysander, Lysander loves Hermia, Helena loves Demetrius and Demetrius loves Hermia. Under the light of the moon, we follow the story of our lover’s quartet as they become ensnared in magical mishaps in a fantastical forest at the hands of the mischievous fairy sprite Puck.
The misuse of magic causes chaos amongst both the young lovers and fairies alike, wreaking romantic havoc and unfathomable happenings which can only be explained away as nothing more than a surreal dream…
This magical Made at Curve production is the perfect summer Shakespeare treat for all the family.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream runs from Thurs 10th Aug to Sunday 20th Aug.
