This production of the very popular Shakespeare play about young lovers, accident-prone workmen, and two royal courts - those of Duke Theseus, and King Oberon and Queen Titania - "is touching and joyously inventive. Dominic Dromgoole's lively, affectionate and consistently inventive staging beautifully captures both the humor and the disconcerting strangeness of the play. This is a joyously inventive and touching production of The Dream, a work that seems particularly close to Shakespeare's heart." (The Telegraph). "A Midsummer Night's Dream" was captured in High Definition and surround sound at the Globe Theatre's faithful reconstruction on the banks of the Thames, which has been called "a theatrical heaven" by the Sunday Express.
