NT Live's A Midsummer Night's Dream

Shakespeare’s 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 the royal couple’s dispute grows, they meddle with the mortals’ lives, leading to love triangles, mistaken identities, and transformations. Directed by Nicholas Hytner (NT Live: Othello, NT Live: One Man, Two Guvnors) this immersive production features Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) and Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx) as Titania and Oberon, with the roving audience following the action on foot.

Tickets: $20 (members), $30 (nonmembers)

This film is part of the World Stage on Screen series.
