A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Faced with unwanted marriages and parents who don’t listen, four teenage lovers flee the city. But in the forest things are no better: the Fairy King and Queen are at war and a bunch of wannabe actors struggle to get their show off the ground.

In this enchanted, topsy-turvy world, their dream of escape threatens to turn into a nightmare. Friends fall out, transformations abound, and magic piles on mayhem.

The renowned Chichester Festival Youth Theatre perform a fresh take on Shakespeare’s bewitching romantic comedy, promenading through the beautifully atmospheric setting of West Dean Gardens near Chichester, directed by Jon Pashley.
