National Theatre Live: A Midsummer Night's Dream

By William Shakespeare National Theatre Live
17 October 2019 Salisbury Arts Centre
NT Live A Midsummer Night's Dream


Thursday 17 October at 7pm


‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.

"Could be the most joyously affirmative Shakespeare production I’ve ever seen" - The Metro ★★★★★

"A warm, exuberant celebration of the transforming power of love." - Financial Times ★★★★

"Five stars might not be enough" The Observer ★★★★★

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.
