Simon Evans – director of the acclaimed Bug and The Dazzle – brings his irreverent, mischievous and wildly creative interpretation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Southwark Playhouse for a limited five week run from Tuesday 31 May until Friday 1 July 2016.

Presented by Go People, the company behind the sell-out production of Almost, Maine at the Park Theatre, the production’s seven-strong cast will be led by Freddie Fox, star of The Judas Kiss and Hay Fever in the West End, and Maddy Hill, best known for her role of Nancy Carter in EastEnders and winner of the National Television Award for Most Popular Newcomer.

Performed not by the usual 17 actors but instead a troupe of 7 – it promises something altogether different, and full of surprises - this is farce meets Shakespeare in the most exciting way.
