Casting announced for Young Vic’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Published November 25, 2016

Joe Hill-Gibbins returns to the Young Vic’s Main House stage with a bold new production featuring Michael Gould as Oberon, Anastasia Hille as Titania and Leo Bill as Bottom. Lovers Lysander and Hermia are played by John Dagleish and Jemima Rooper; Demetrius and Helena by Oliver Alvin-Wilson and Anna Madeley. Matthew Steer plays Peter Quince. Further casting is still to be announced.

Oliver, John, Anna and Matthew are making their Young Vic debut in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, while Leo, Michael, Anastasia, Jemima and Joe are returning to the London venue.

In a world of grotesque transformations and sexual provocation, repressed conflicts between lovers and their parents are released. Manipulation leads to complications and desire becomes dangerous. Heaving with the energy of a wild house party, Hill-Gibbins’ production dives into the subconscious of Shakespeare’s masterpiece. 

A Midsummer Night’s Dream runs 16 February until 1 April 2017 in the Young Vic’s Main House. For more information and to book tickets, visit the venue’s website
