The reviews are in for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which completes its run on 27 July:

“This is an enchantment of a production…enveloped in an air of magic; what an inventive delight this is.” The Times

A spellbinding evening. Susan Wokoma is sheer bliss, delivering one of the most endearing and effortlessly funny Bottoms I’ve ever seen.” Daily Telegraph

“Rachael Canning’s design is exquisite and the performers sublime. This production should be seen for fairies. Emerging like splinters from beneath set, the hulking arachnid creatures are terrifying. Hunched on tilted stilts, they converse in sign language, stalking lovers who swipe at the air around them as if walking into cobwebs” The Guardian

A visual masterpiece. Never has there been a more enthralling renditionThe Upcoming

“Sounds and shadows haunt Dominic Hill’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Shakespeare’s midnight revels take on a suggestively eerie quality” BroadwayWorld.com

Bewitching and beguiling…a delectably dark and gothic-tinged take on Shakespeare’s comedy gorgeously lit by Ben Ormerod who adds a note of beauty to the sinister setting” The Stage
