“Though she be but little, she is fierce!”

A riotous, raucous, and riveting night out, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the story of love in all its confusion.

A professional acting troupe of six outrageous performers arrive in Reading to perform in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Mistakes, potions, and a couple of pints are sure to make the event one to remember.

Paul Stacey, Artistic Director of Reading Rep Theatre, said: “It has been a tumultuous winter, but our new version of Shakespeare’s timeless classic is designed to welcome audiences back with open arms. Come and celebrate with our actors, and your whole family, as we throw open the doors of our theatre once more for a dreamy midsummer party.”
