A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare’s most enduringly popular comedy of love and intrigue, magic and mayhem, is brought to life by family favourites Quantum Theatre in their wonderfully funny and exuberant production of the Shakespeare classic.

Set on that most dangerous of nights when fairies are abroad and nothing is as it seems, four young, unsuspecting lovers become entangled in their magical affray and soon no mortals are safe in those bewitched and bewitching woods outside Athens. Quantum Theatre’s stylish and whimsical production presents a magical flight of fancy for all the family… “I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was…”
