A MIDSUMMER NIGHT´S DREAM
English Language Theatre
Written by William Shakespeare
Adapted and Directed by Neil Rutherford
Playing at Parkteatern 2016 and 2017
A Midsummer Night’s Dream has always been one of Shakepeare’s best loved plays, and this new production, set within a hippy commune in the 1960’s, presents all the fun and amorousness of the original within a world of free love, peace, psychedelic visions, and altered states of consciousness.
As two pairs of troubled lovers enter the woods, the ‘fairies’ and ‘spirits’ of the land try to help their foreign guests. But even the fairies themselves are arguing, and make several mistakes in their attempts to bring the humans, and themselves, peacefully together. Will the lovers end up with their right partner or will the mischievous magic of the fairies prove to be their failing?
This hilarious and colourful new production will be presented in an 80 minute adaptation, with laughter, joy, music, dance and abundant open-air romance.
This production is suitable for children and adults.
