About this event

Chapterhouse Theatre Company presents Shakespeare’s best-loved romantic comedy. Picnic with family and friends in the picturesque surroundings of Ardgillan Castle for the perfect evening of magical theatre in magical surroundings.

One of Shakespeare’s most famous comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream follows three storylines as they are tangled together by fae trickster Puck; four young lovers traverse an enchanted forest on Midsummer’s night, The Faerie King Oberon and Queen Titania feud with one another, and a travelling troupe present a play within a play. Believed to have been written in 1595 or 1596 to celebrate an aristocratic wedding, ours is a story of order and chaos, waking and dreaming, and love and marriage.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
