2011 Caxton Theatre

Shakespeare’s mad comedy, mostly set in a wood, populated with fairies, workmen and four very confused lovers. The fairy king and queen are in the middle of a long drawn out row, the workmen are rehearsing a play what one of them wrote and the lovers are… running about a lot and being confused. Their worlds collide, helped by some misplaced magic and with hilarious results. This lightest of light comedies is always a joy to watch.
