What is it?
Immersion Theatre presents William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a wonderful and iconic comedy; but what happens if all preconceptions are forgotten? What if the play is taken at its word?
Immersion Theatre provides audiences with the opportunity to choose which world they want to experience; the dream or the nightmare, the charm or the horror. So why not take the opportunity to preview this unique production before Immersion Theatre embark on their first UK tour?
Set before the start of the Great War, this adaptation transports fantastical characters to a time of unparalleled peace and prosperity. Four young lovers, a band of hapless actors, and a magical realm populated by enchanting spirits set on causing mischief and mayhem at every turn, culminates in an evening of beauty and hilarity. See this lighter side of the dream on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday matinée.
Set at the height of the First World War, this haunting adaptation transports the audience to an unforgettable era in which the greatest war of modern times threatens to tear love apart and where, in the dead of night, the dark, dangerous woods become the playground to the mourning spirits of those who have fallen before their time. See the dark side of the dream on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evening.
Both versions will have the same cast with each actor playing the same role. If you think you know this story, think again. Will you dream with the fairies or end up in a nightmare? The choice is yours.
