Shakespeare’s Globe and Splendid Productions cordially invite you to Midsummer Mechanicals, the hilarious new follow-up to the play-within-a-play from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, premiering in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse this Summer.

“Dear most welcome recipient. Following the success of our recent production ‘Pyramus and Thisbe’, we, the foremost acting-folk in all Athens, return with an original creation of ‘unparalleled beauty, excitement and good actoring’ (in the words of author and lead player Nick Bottom). It tells the tale of one extraordinary night where a handsome adventurer meets his destiny in a deep forest!”

Your eyes will pop, your mouth will gape and your sides will split as the Mechanicals present a theatrical dream like no other.

Suitable for the young, the youngest and the young at heart.

‘All is possible, nothing is what it seems!’

The words Splendid Productions logo appear in black text
