A Midsummer Night's Dream

Performance Times: 7.45pm (plus an additional 2pm matinee on Sat 3 Aug)
Performance Venue: Cannizaro Park (Wimbledon)
"Lord, what fools these mortals be!"
In this ever-popular comedy, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a company of hapless actors and malicious sprites cross paths with the King and Queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute. Audiences will be transported to a tainted supernatural forest overflowing with possibilities where the unexplainable magic of falling in love – and the marvel of waking up from the sweetest of dreams – is discovered.
Chaos, confusion, trickery and skullduggery reign in this fresh, joyful, accessible and memorable interpretation of the Shakespeare’s most loved comedy.
The beautiful setting of Cannizaro Park will once again provide us with a stunning backdrop for this year’s open-air performances (this year performed in the round with amplified sound) and will continue Mayhem’s popular summer tradition of bringing the Bard to South London.

All performances will feature amplified sound. The venue is accessible for wheelchair users, but please advise us if anyone attending will be using a wheelchair, so that we may arrange the easiest access to the performance area.
