    Midsummer Mechanicals Tickets

    This fun, silly and interactive sequel to A Midsummer Night’s Dream is fantastic summer entertainment for children.

    A hilarious Shakespearean play for families

    Get your little ones engrossed in Shakespeare as Nick Bottom and his famous acting troupe from A Midsummer Night’s Dream put on their second Midsummer Mechanicals play. The brand new interactive show for families runs at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse this summer.

    The Mechanicals went down in theatrical history long ago, when their first ever performance of Pyramus and Thisbe was a resounding success. Now they’re back to try their hand at play number two… but will all go to plan?

    With half an hour to go until curtain up and everyone sort-of ready, the Mechanicals’ magical masterpiece becomes a bit of a farce.

    Created for Shakespeare’s Globe in collaboration with Splendid Productions, Midsummer Mechanicals is a specially-created play aimed at children, directed by Lucy Cuthbertson and Kerry Frampton. It’s full of ridiculous props, absurd costumes and surprise twists that will have you hanging off your seats in stitches no matter your age!

    Book Midsummer Mechanicals tickets for a lighthearted introduction to the world of Shakespeare that the whole family will enjoy.
