Under the setting sun, Essential Theatre invites you to relax in the grounds of the beautiful Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden and savour the performance of Shakespeare’s delightful comedy – A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

“I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was”

Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has been loved for over four hundred years and continues to weave its spells worldwide.

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites play and fairies rule. A feuding Fairy King and Queen cross paths with Bottom, Quince and their bumbling mates presenting a play within a play. Leading mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most wondrous comedy.

Shakespeare in the Garden: A Midsummer Night’s Dream are outdoor picnic performances. The Garden closes at 4pm and all visitors will be required to leave at this time.

Patrons for the Shakespeare event will not be admitted to set up their picnics prior to the gate opening at 5:30.
