The Lyric Hammersmith and Filter’s madcap, critically acclaimed, production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is back for a UK Tour, opening at the Lyric for just two performances next April.

The production first enjoyed a hugely successful run at both the Lyric Hammersmith and Royal Exchange Manchester in 2012, before being revived in 2016 at the Lyric (Stage Review’s five-star verdict HERE) and then touring to Brisbane Festival and Dublin Theatre Festival.

This riotous reinterpretation of one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays returns for a seven-week tour. Featuring original live music, this classic tale of young lovers and warring fairies is given a unique and irreverent twist.
