Presented by the Pop-up Globe Buckingham's Company.

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind...”

Pop-up Globe’s resident company present Shakespeare’s magical comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Justly regarded as Shakespeare's comic masterpiece, A Midsummer Night's Dream enchants audiences with a brilliant mix of hilarious comedy and beautiful poetry. This new production, directed by Pop-up Globe's Artistic Director and founder Dr Miles Gregory, fuses spectacular Jacobean costumes with Māori folklore to create our flagship production for the 2017/18 Pop-up Globe season.

Oppressed by a brutal dictatorship, four lovers escape a death sentence by fleeing to an ancient forest. Elsewhere in the woods, a group of tradies secretly meet to indulge their love of amateur drama. But there’re more than just trees in this forest. Ancient creatures of myth and legend haunt the dark corners of the woods, and they love nothing more than causing trouble…

Based on the performance tradition of 1614, the Buckingham's Company are Pop-up Globe’s resident all-male company of actors and musicians, drawn from around the world. Working with international theatre experts and creatives, they will transport you four hundred years into the past for the extraordinary experience of seeing Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space for which they were written.
