  • A Midsummer Night's Dream

    Wednesday 8th - Saturday 11th November 2023
    at Hampton Hill Theatre, 90 High Street, Hampton Hill TW12 1NZ.

    First in 1974... second in 1986... third in 1994... 2023 sees YAT return to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream for a fourth and very different time...

    A story of order and disorder, reality and appearance, love and marriage. Theseus and Hippolyta are to be married, and great celebrations are planned. But, four lovers run away to the forest only to have Puck the fairy make both of the boys fall in love with the same girl. In the same forest, a group of artisans are rehearsing a show for the duke’s wedding, before Puck makes an Ass of their leading actor.

    Set in the early 80's, with a backdrop of London’s East End, this take on the Shakespearean comedy takes you through an eclectic range of classic songs from the era. Ranging from The Sex Pistols and David Bowie to Johnny Cash and Jefferson Airplane, there is something for everyone, musically. New wave punk rock, glam rock, psychedelic rock & the blues and all the hairstyles, make up and attitudes that come along with it are all included in our melting pot of “Athens". With such a modern setting, we’ve had the freedom to adapt to a more modern casting as well, with the show set only just a decade after the Stonewall riots, it incorporates reality to a fantasy show & allows us to break the “traditional” casting of this 500-year-old show
