Bristol Old Vic

Spoleto Festival

A Bristol Old Vic production
In Association with Handspring Puppet Company
Directed by Tom Morris

Co-commissioned by Spoleto Festival USA
Designed by Vicki Mortimer

Having last worked together on the internationally acclaimed War Horse, Bristol Old Vic’s Artistic Director Tom Morris and Cape Town’s Handspring Puppet Company reunite to begin a new journey in Bristol.

Shakespeare’s inexhaustible A Midsummer Night’s Dream unfurls in the intimacy of our redeveloped Theatre, interweaving the lives of lovers, actors, friends, foes and fairies. This is a …Dream about love, transformation, survival and song, where a belief in the mystical presence of fairies isn’t mere superstition, but a magic lore encoded in the routines of a community living on the edge.

Trees, objects and tools all pulse and tingle with the possibility of existence in a world that, thanks to the magic of Handspring, all objects are granted the right to life.
