A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Shakespeare Under the Stars

Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, Birdwood Avenue, South Yarra, Victoria, 3141

Be transported from balmy Melbourne Gardens to the interwoven world of Lovers, Fairies and Fools at The Australian Shakespeare Company’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream under the stars. The jewel in the Shakespeare comedy crown is set to take audiences of all ages on a delightful and riotous ride. See the Gardens illuminated in the night, glowing and sparkling while you reel with laughter as the tale unfolds.

When the King and Queen of the Fairies cross paths with a quartet of runaway lovers and a group of thespian tradesmen attempting to rehearse a play, this one night in the enchanted forest takes them on one wild ride. As the fairies magically meddle in the lives of the mortals, love triangles, misconceptions and transformation abound with hilarious consequences.

Performance days and times vary, see website for details.

Presented by Glenn Elston and The Australian Shakespeare Company.
