The 2016 Wonder Season at Shakespeare’s Globe will be kicking off with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Join Helena, Hermia, Demetrius and Lysander wading through the magical woods filled with fairies, led by Titania and Oberon. The beloved Shakespeare tale combines romance, confusion, comedy and beauty in a celestial setting designed by Lez Brotherston, spreading out from the piazza onto London’s Bankside. The production is set to be a debaucherous journey full to the brim with merriment, music and magic. Introducing Emma Rice as artistic director, the season will also include The Taming of the Shrew, Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice and many more.
