Shakespeare's sparkling comedy is a perennial favourite with audiences and returns to the Bankside venue this season.
Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius, but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia. When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the loverlorn quartet takes refuge in the forest. What with angry fairies and a group of wandering players, the forest is a busy place. When the bumbling Puck starts clowning around with a love potion, all sorts of shenanigans ensue.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
