It will be a chance for the audience to spend a night in the forest with a bunch of fairies with attitude, a King and Queen at war, a mischievous sprite and of course Bottom and his band of amateur actors busy rehearsing their play.

Director Robert Sloan, whose production of Romeo and Juliet was chosen to close the RSC Open Stages showcase in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2012, brings you the classic tale, full of laughter, dark magic, war and of course love.

Chosen to be part of this year’s RSC Open Stages project, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream promises to be truly enchanting and a night the audience will never ever forget.

The show is performed at 7.30pm each night except Sunday when there will be no performance.

Tickets for the show cost between £11 and £12 and can be booked by calling the box office on 01788 541234 or by visiting
