About the production
Dominic Dromgoole directs Michelle Terry and John Light as fairy royalty in a Renaissance staging of this much-loved comedy. Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.
