A Midsummer Night's Dream' on Wednesday 28th July - Wednesday 11th August 2021
The idyllic grounds of the Kew Gardens will play host to 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' from 28 July to 29 August 2021.
Staged beneath the heritage trees at the Berberis Dell, Kew Gardens provides the picture-perfect setting for a summer's evening with Shakespeare under the stars.
This beguiling comedy of enchantment and transformation is brought to life within a dream-like woodland, filled with feuding fairies, eloping lovers and a hapless troupe of actors.
There's magic in the air alongside wild thyme, oxlips, nodding violets, luscious woodbine, sweet musk roses and eglantine. It's an alfresco romp peppered with contemporary references.
Into the mix add a spellbinding potion and a mischievous sprite for a summer night of mayhem like no other.
From 28 July - 29 August 2021. Performance times Tues - Sun: 8pm. Enter via Victoria Gate.
Running Time: 2 hours 20 mins including intermission. No performances scheduled on 10 - 11 August 2021.
Gates open 1.5 hours before start of the performance and guests may enjoy the gardens prior to the show.
