A Midsummer Night's Dream
In a carnival of colour and celebration; Storyhouse’s Alex Clifton directs Shakespeare’s most popular play. Performed at both our venues, you can choose between visiting Storyhouse, the north west’s brand new theatre and arts centre, or Chester’s beautiful Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre.
On midsummer night, four young lovers flee Athens and lose themselves in woodland wilderness, falling under the spell of the outrageous and unpredictable fairy king and queen and magical world. Showcasing wildly different shapes and styles of love and marriage, this riotous, gleeful production runs throughout summer.
In an age of political uncertainty and controversial leaders, Shakespeare’s immortal thriller is given new relevance and a contemporary twist. Loyalty collides with ambition in the ultimate tale of popular leadership, rise to power, and winning over the people.
In a slick, modern setting, ruthless politicians occupy the shadowy corridors of power, conspiring with and against each other as the race to claim the empire spins violently out of control.
