    Name: National Theatre Encore Screening - Midsummer Night's Dream
    Date: October 10, 2020 - October 11, 2020
    Event Description:
    The course of true love never did run smooth.

    In Shakespeare’s enduring comic masterpiece, 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.

    Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy was filmed live from 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.

    The theatre becomes a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot. A delight not to be missed.
