Pity the fool who falls in love…
Following the great success of last year’s Twelfth Night and Romeo + Juliet, the Watermill Ensemble return with A Midsummer Night’s Dream, fusing actor musicianship with one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies.
Four lovers escape the decorum of the royal courts, eluding tradition and etiquette on one fateful, intoxicating night in the Athenian woods.
Secrets, love and mistaken identities collide with a fusion of rich and beautiful music inspired by the hedonistic soulful sounds of Nina Simone and Billie Holiday.
Enter an enchanted world of dreams and passion, where the powerful spirits of a midsummer’s night will put a spell on you.
