A Midsummer Night's Dream Tickets

Shakespeare’s ethereal comedy about lovers lost in an enchanted forest conjures up mischief and romance at the Globe.

Shakespeare’s bewildering and joyous comedy

Enter a bewitching forest filled with fairies, romance, and amateur actors in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Globe Theatre.

On Midsummer’s eve, four young lovers chase each other into a forest. Amongst the trees, they cross paths with a band of ambitious performers and a feuding Fairy King and Queen. When the mischievous sprite Puck casts a spell on the rebellious interlopers, up becomes down, nature is transformed and chaos reigns.

Shakespeare’s delightfully disruptive comedy about love, jealousy and transformation is riotous fun. At the Globe Theatre, Mother Nature wraps the auditorium in the forest’s bewildering arms, and the audience is invited to join in the revelry.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Globe Theatre is directed by Elle While. Casting includes Shakespeare’s Globe Artistic Director Michelle Terry as Puck.

Book A Midsummer Night’s Dream tickets and prepare for an intoxicating adventure. This topsy-turvy comedy is perfect entertainment during the balmy evenings of a London summer.
