National Theatre Live: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Rural Arts Thirsk
Thursday 17th October

Step into a dream world of flying fairies and moonlit revels with Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones). Shakespeare’s finest romantic comedy, directed by Olivier award winning Nicholas Hytner.

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations...with hilarious, but dark consequences.

An encore performance of Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy, filmed at the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.
 
★★★★★ "Five stars might not be enough" - Observer
★★★★★ "Could be the most joyously affirmative Shakespeare production I’ve ever seen" - Metro
★★★★★ "Deserves to be talked about for years to come" - Daily Telegraph
