presented by Troubadour Stageworks

Four young lovers, five amateur players and a warring fairy host descend on the same forest in one evening. What could possibly go wrong?

As the lines between reality and illusion begin to blur, no-one but the mischievous Puck knows what is true and what is magic...

Troubadour’s take on Shakespeare’s classic comedy will transport you from your local forest, field, hall or dell to a truly magical midsummer dream. It is a production both epic and intimate, designed to be enjoyed by all the family. It is packed with original songs and plenty of wonder.

Did you know?
Midsummer is traditionally the night when the barrier between the fae and mortal world is most weak. In our production we lean into that otherworldly merger- in amongst the play of sprites, the magic, the music, the forest setting, what might happen when you become the plaything of immortals?

  • Please allow 20 minutes before the performance starts to walk to the amphitheatre, as it is situated in the heart of Trebah Garden.
  • With tiered seating and plenty of leg room everyone gets ‘the best seat in the house’, so there’s no need to bring your own chairs (but a cushion is a good idea). Please be aware however that seating is unreserved.
  • A number of cushioned seats with back supports are available at the amphitheatre on a first-come-first-served basis.
  • For large parties and groups, please arrive in plenty of time for us to find you seats together.
