Nicholas Hytner will direct an immersive production of William Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream running at the Bridge from 3 June – 31 August 2019. Evening performances are Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm with weekday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm (check website for details). Tickets for A Midsummer Night’s Dream will go on sale for Priority Members today at 10am, for Advance Members on Thursday 18 October 2018 at 10am with tickets released for public sale on Friday 19 October 2018 at 10am.
Reuniting the creative team who previously presented Julius Caesar at the Bridge earlier this year, A Midsummer Night’s Dream will have designs by Bunny Christie, costumes by Christina Cunningham, lighting by Bruno Poet and sound by Paul Arditti. Music will be by Grant Olding.
Shakespeare’s great comedy plunges its audience into the heart of an enchanted forest, a place of change and infinite possibility. In the Bridge’s immersive production, you sit close up to the action, or follow it on foot into a dream world of feuding fairies and uncontrollable desire.
With seating wrapped around the action, there will also be several hundred immersive tickets at £25 available in advance for each performance with a special allocation of £15 immersive tickets held for Young Bridge, a free scheme for those under 26.
