About this event

Filmed live at Shakespeare's Globe on the final night of its highly successful run, this version of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream has not only impressed audiences, but also the critics.

The show was live-streamed from The Globe on Sunday 11 September 2016, and a full recording is available to view on the BBC website.

The recording will be available for 6 months - that's through to March 2017 - and can be viewed internationally as well as in the UK.

The show is introduced by actress Meera Syal and was the first time any production was live-streamed worldwide from the Bankside venue.

Fusing music, dance and some serious comedy, Emma Rice’s first production as Artistic Director brings the Dream crashing into the Globe’s magical setting.


Four runaway lovers find themselves smack bang in the middle of a dispute between the King and Queen of the fairies, and, as if that wasn’t enough, a troupe of amateur actors are trying to rehearse a play.

Between these unlikely groups flies Puck, armed only with a wicked sense of humour and a love potion capable of making anyone fall for the first person they set eyes upon.

What could possibly go wrong?


From:Monday 12 September 2016
