“Magical and mysterious” The Guardian


A new twist on a familiar story from the War Horse team - makers of dreams


A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the new collaboration between Bristol Old Vic artistic director Tom Morris, and Cape Town’s Handspring Puppet - the team behind the phenomenal, global hit, War Horse.


This is a Dream about love, survival, mystery and superstition, darkness and light. Inhabiting Shakespeare’s sexiest and most magical comedy are lovers, friends, foes and fairies. But this is also a world in which trees and objects pulse and tingle with the possibility of existence. A world in which, thanks to the skills of Handspring, all objects are granted the right to life.


Tom Morris’ brilliant young cast of actors and puppeteers make magic happen. There’s ardent love and bawdy laughter, poetry, despair and joy. Played out on a starkly beautiful set, deeply faithful to the heart of this wondrous work of imagination, here is Shakespeare as enjoyable as you’ve ever seen.
