The Lyric Hammersmith and Filter announce UK Tour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Sean Holmes

 

A Lyric Hammersmith & Filter Production

 

The Lyric Hammersmith and Filter’s critically acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be touring the UK, opening at the Lyric for two performances only on 13 & 14 April 2018, then Hull Truck Theatre, Theatr Clwyd, Nuffield Southampton Theatres, Exeter Northcott Theatre, Oxford Playhouse, Cast in Doncaster and Cambridge Arts Theatre.

Following the production’s hugely successful run at both the Lyric Hammersmith and Royal Exchange Manchester in 2012, the production was then revived in 2016 at the Lyric which then toured to Brisbane Festival and Dublin Theatre Festival. This riotous reinterpretation of one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays returns for a seven-week UK tour. Featuring original live music, this classic tale of young lovers and warring fairies is given a unique and irreverent twist.
