By William Shakespeare
Directed by Alex Clifton
Music by Robert Hiley
Designed by Jess Curtis

In a carnival of colour and celebration; Storyhouse’s Alex Clifton directs Shakespeare’s most popular play. Performed at both our venues, you can choose between visiting Storyhouse, the north west’s brand new theatre and arts centre, or Chester’s beautiful Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre.

On midsummer night, four young lovers flee Athens and lose themselves in woodland wilderness, falling under the spell of the outrageous and unpredictable fairy king and queen and magical world. Showcasing wildly different shapes and styles of love and marriage, this riotous, gleeful production runs throughout summer.

Prices vary with demand, so book early for the best seats at the lowest price.
