NT at Home: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Free to Stream 25th June – 2nd July.

Watch the Bridge Theatre’s magical and immersive production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 🧚🌼 ‘Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream.’ 🌸✨

Gwendoline Christie, Oliver Chris, David Moorst and Hammed Animashaun lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom, in Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy.

A feuding fairy King and Queen cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives in the forest, to hilarious, but dark, consequences.

The Bridge Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is streaming from 7pm UK time on Thursday 25 June, until 7pm UK time on Thursday 2 July 2020.

The running time is 2 hours 40 minutes with a very short interval. The BBFC rating is 12A with infrequent strong language.
