A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Against the enchanting backdrop of the Thames Barrier Park, Shakespeare's most spell-binding play comes to life. Immerse yourself in the rich history of the docklands while this classic tale of impossible love, magic and mischief unfolds around you. Picnic baskets and blankets are encouraged.
Between performances, stick around for a workshop with our company members to further understand the world of the play and the cultural history of the docks themselves. Suitable for all ages.
