A Midsummer Night's Dream

21st - 25th June 2016

William Shakespeare's much loved comedy is set in 1920s London. Fairyland is the wild and wonderful night club world of 'The 43' in Gerrard Street and the Kit Kat Club. The wood  'a mile outside the town', is St James' Park. Theseus has an Art Deco palace and music from the period, chosen to fit both characters and scenes, is played and sung by the marvellous 'Music Deco'.


Duke Theseus has won the war but how will he cope with marriage? Will the lovers ever sort out who ends up with whom? Will Oberon and Titania finally get the weather sorted out?  Will Bottom's mishap mean that Quince's play never makes it to the West End?


All these questions, and some you never knew you had, will be answered in the ELTC production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
