Sydney Theatre Company

A Midsummer Night's Dream
By William Shakespeare

A Dream like no other.

Dark, sensual and impishly funny, Shakespeare's mystical comedy returns in a bewitching version with the STC Actors Company.

The course of true love never did run smooth.

Mistaken identity, thwarted desire and delirious dreams unfold in a brand new production of imagination and theatricality by acclaimed British director, Edward Dick.

A play of wisdom and folly emerges through breathtaking poetry, rough slapstick - and a beautiful evocation of magic. In a strange, love-soaked universe we come to see ourselves - but how much of what we see is the realm of illusion?

Lord what fools these mortals be.

A wood. Mystical drugs. Confused sprites. Appalling amateur theatrics. A sexually irresistible donkey.

An unforgettable masterpiece.
