A Midsummer Night's Dream DVD (2016)
Shakespeare's Globe 2016 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream filmed on the Globe stage and directed by Emma Rice.
The woods outside Athens are a busy place on this magical night! Four runaway lovers find themselves smack bang in the middle of a dispute between the King and Queen of the fairies, and if that wasn't enough, a troupe of amateur actors are trying to rehearse a play. Between these unlikely groups flies Puck, armed only with a wicked sense of humour and a magic potion capable of making anyone fall in love with the first person they set eyes on. What could possibly go wrong? Fusing music, dance and some serious comedy, Emma Rice's first production as Artistic Director brings the Dream crashing into the Globe's magical setting. Naughty, tender, transgressive and surprising, it is truly a festival of theatre. Internationally acclaimed actor, singer and Performance Diva, Meow Meow plays the mischievous fairy queen Titania. Let the joy begin!
