The award-winning international-touring Action to the Word bring their brand new production of Shakespeare’s classic comedy to the NT Riverside. From the ensemble that created the press-acclaimed A Clockwork Orange and Dracula, and directed by Alexandra Spencer-Jones, this adaptation will temper your summer spirit, leading you ‘painted blind’ into the woods of Athens where nothing is as it seems. In this, the 400th year since Shakespeare’s death, we celebrate our glorious bard and his most ridiculous cavalcade of love, sex and mythology. Borrowing from the circus, the amphitheatres of Ancient Greece and classic clowning, Action To The Word invite you to their preview of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
