About

My! 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 love potion capable of making anyone fall for the first person they set eyes upon. 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!

‘The Globe certainly rocks with laughter in an irreverent evening in which the jokes come fast and furious ... an entertaining and rowdy night out.’ – The Guardian

‘What an extraordinary debut for Emma Rice.’ – The Spectator

‘This is living theatre, hot-blooded and hot-bodied, a production that feels utterly at home in the space while also challenging people’s perceptions of what the Globe is for ... this is joyful stuff.’ – The Stage
