A Midsummer’s Night Dream is often staged this time of year, just as summer flings are heating up, but was this London production fiery enough to make Puck blush?

With a theatre-in-the-round staging, the Bridge Theatre production of the Shakespearean fairy tale stars Game of Thrones' Gwendolyn Christie as Titania. Bridge Theatre co-founder Nicholas Hytner directs with performances running through August 31. A taping of the show will play cinemas October 17 to kick off NT Live's fall programming.
