Chapterhouse Theatre Company returns once again with Shakespeare’s much-loved romantic comedy. Settle in for a story that explores love, innocence, and identity, and meet star-crossed lovers, a riotous troupe of travelling players, and the King and Queen of the fairies who live in an enchanted forest outside the walls of the city of Athens. Elizabethan costumes, an original musical score, and woodland creatures come together to make an evening of unmissable summer garden theatre, set under the haze and glow of the setting sun.

"Superb. Your actors performed it brilliantly. We were all mesmerised!" Bronagh, Enniskillen Castle

"Such a funny, human, innovative splendid performance... thank you for the midsummer magic!" Krystyna, Kew at Wakehurst

"I really enjoyed seeing this outdoors in lovely gardens. Kids were a big part of the audience and everyone was relaxed and able to enjoy the lovely language. The actors, sets and music brought the play to life in a lovely way." Joe, National Botanic Gardens Dublin

"Entertaining and professional. The best performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream I have ever seen." Carol, Quarry Bank Mill
