Set beneath heritage trees within Kew Gardens, this is Midsummer Night’s Dream in uniquely botanical surroundings – as twilight falls, the stage is set for Shakespeare under the stars.
This beguiling comedy of enchantment and transformation is brought to life within a dream-like woodland filled with feuding fairies, eloping lovers and a hapless troupe of actors.
There’s magic in the air alongside wild thyme, oxlips, nodding violets, luscious woodbine, sweet musk roses and eglantine. It’s an alfresco romp peppered with contemporary references. Into the mix add a spellbinding potion and a mischievous sprite for a summer night of mayhem like no other.
Each performance will last approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes with an intermission. They will take place at the Berberis Dell at 8pm each evening.
Children: (5-15 years) £17
