A magical spell will be cast over Cardiff this October

In the patriarchal city, you are told who you get to love. Hermia loves Lysanna but is being forced to marry Demetrius. Whilst Hermia’s friend Helena secretly adores Demetrius. Escaping into the woods, these four young people find a world without rules and where anything is possible.

We’re celebrated for our fresh new takes on classic plays including The Taming of the Shrew, Hedda Gabler and A Hero of the People. Now, our new major production of this evergreen classic promises A Midsummer Night’s Dream for our times. Writers Mari Izzard and Nia Morais are sprinkling extra magic on this masterpiece with new Welsh language adaptations, creating a rich bilingual theatre experience.

Performed by an outstanding cast of Welsh and Wales-based actors, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the play we all need right now. Theatre doesn’t get more feel good than Shakespeare’s joyous and hilarious tale of desire. Join us this autumn and feel your spirits lift and your heart soar.

Welsh language dialogue will be captioned as part of the production at all performances.
