About the Play  
 

Shakespeare’s magical comedy of mistaken, confused and enchanted identities comes back to Dubrovnik where it shall be performed at Fort Lovrjenac, the most famous open air venue in this part of Europe.

The brand new production specially designed for Midsummer Scene Festival dives into the world of Faery where the stark world of Athenian court dissolves into a mad lovers’ chase.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a classic Shakespearean comedy focusing on themes of love, passion, magic, mistaken identity and even theatre itself. It is one of the most widely performed plays from the Bard’s back catalogue.

Taking the 1930s as its starting point, this production will also feature Bollywood-style choreography.

The British cast, directed by Helen Tennison, is supported by an international creative team.

Midsummer Scene is a project of the City of Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, and it is
a joint production with Brilliant Events, Dubrovnik and Honey-tongued Theatre Productions Ltd. London
