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.

Writers Mari Izzard and Nia Morais are sprinkling extra magic on this masterpiece with new Welsh language adaptations, creating a rich bilingual theatre experience. Welsh language dialogue will be captioned as part of the production at all performances.

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.

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.



If you’re booking to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream from 20 – 22 October, you might also be interested in seeing free production HOUSE before or after the performance. A captivating, through the keyhole look into what becomes the monotonous reality of an ordinary couple moving into their first home together. HOUSE is a free 20-minute physical theatre production advocating the normalisation of LGBT+ relationships. Booking required – find out more here.
