Best version of this I've ever seen

Wonderfully realised, with absolutely genius direction and scripting. Characterisation is absolutely, marvellously perfect, Puck, Bottom, Titania, Oberon, the whole cast give their utter best combining 21st and 16th century east London with classical Athens an smatterings of Mancunian gay bars, strip,clubs and deep, dark misogyny. Bottom is fabulous! I've seen countless productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream, but never have I laughed so heartily, or gripped my seat in horror. Theatre at its absolute best.

10 / 10


This is 21st century theatre at its best. This wonderful and outstanding production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' is undoubtedly a creative success on every level. The show is spectacle at its purest, deftly combining different arts in profoundly original and previously unthinkable ways, and yet in so doing, it loses nothing of the vivacity of Shakespeare's text. This fun and lively adaptation sucks you in and I can only feel jealous of those lucky enough to have watched it in situ. Thanks to great improvisations by all cast members, a fantastic use of the theatrical space and a pretty killer soundtrack this hilarious, complex and greatly entertaining mise en scène is a joy to watch. Watching it in early July 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic is the true midsummer night's dream. One of NTL's greatest shows.

Let's face it. Actor like the Bard because it gives them free reign to over act.

This show is a bore fest. The acting is horrible. In fact, it's so bad that you will wind up laughing and not because it's supposed to be funny.

The production sucked too. It's a train wreck.
