A Midsummer Night's Dream Theatre & Performing Arts

a_midsummer_nights_dream


Multi award-winning ensemble The Faction return with their unique and magical take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Re-examining the linguistic detail of Shakespeare’s verse, The Faction create unforgettable visual moments, unleashing the magic, energy and mayhem of this work, from the raw power of the fairies' rituals to an ass's head created entirely from the ensemble’s arms and fingers.

One Midsummer's night, four young lovers, six local tradespeople and an entire kingdom of warring fairies descend upon the Athenian woods. This production will take advantage of the beautiful architecture of Wilton's Music Hall, fusing the character of the building with the design of the set.

Examining the intricacies of the text and stripping audiences of their preconceptions, The Faction will explore the aftermath of war and the sexual and power politics at play in this complex comedy. Doubling will be used to highlight the mirroring across the Athenian, Mechanical and Fairy worlds with doubles chosen through intense scrutiny of the text to bring out new interpretations of each character. The show will present a new interpretation of the fairies, creating innovative and muscular characterisations that will step away from the traditional presentations of the Fairy world.
