Reviews of A Midsummer Night’s Dream 2016

‘A piece of theatre which smashed the fourth wall to bring Shakespeare forward into the 21st century. This light-hearted roller-coaster was witty, entertaining and a breath of fresh air to spending three hours stuck in a stuffy theatre.★★★★★’ The Oxford Times

‘This production wonderfully embeds the ‘real world’ of the play in the real world of beautiful buildings, streets and gardens. It passes the six-laugh test several times over…Fantastic’ Daily Info
