A Midsummer Night's Dream
Barbican
★★★★✩

A play penned by Deptford's most famous son and a traditional tragedy turned on its head are set to dominate Greenwich's stage this spring.

A Midsummer Night's Dream, Greenwich Theatre.

Take a step out of the schoolroom into a magical land of the forest for a rip-roaring comedy to kick-start the autumn season at Greenwich Theatre.

Fresh from a month-long stint at the Edinburgh Festival, the Custom/Practice company will bring its unique take on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream back to the London stage.

The lively, humourous production transports the audience from a grim, inner-city classroom to the fantastical world of woodland, where the mischievous fairy Puck plays havoc with four lovers, while the fairy queen Titania falls in love with the foolish Bottom.
