Screening: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Thu September 17

$15 – $23

A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare

‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’

BMEC’s cinema screen will host a National Theatre Live performance of Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy, captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London.

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Filmed in 2019, Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream builds on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018)The Bridge Theatre becomes a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.

National Theatre Live distributes world class theatre straight from stages across the United Kingdom to cinema screens around the world.
