William Shakespeare's comedy brings together a group of star-crossed lovers, an inept band of actors led by the pompous Bottom, and the king and queen of the fairies and their impish henchman Puck, who creates romantic and comic havoc for all.
The dark heart of Titania and Oberon’s domain is explored as Joe Hill-Gibbins returns to the Young Vic’s Main House stage with a bold new production. In a world of grotesque transformations and sexual provocation, repressed conflicts between young lovers and their parents are released. There’s no magic in this place – manipulation leads to complications and desire becomes dangerous.
