A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare’s best loved comedy and one of the greatest plays in the English Language. Young lovers escape Athens to a forest so they can marry in secret. Meanwhile, some workmen also arrive there, looking for a quiet place to rehearse a play they will perform for the great Athenian Duke. In the forest the King and Queen of the fairies, helped by their fairy servants, play tricks on them all with hilarious results. Great comedy and farce with music, song, dance and period costume. This, elegant and dynamic production will always remain faithful to Shakespeare’s beautiful language

Following their highly praised, sell out productions of Twelfth Night, Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing and Romeo and Juliet, Wild Goose Theatre (previously Tomahawk Theatre) returns to the magnificent Oxford Castle this summer. The production will take place in the open air, in the exquisite surroundings of the Oxford Castle courtyard. Wet weather contingency available.
