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.
