The Midsummer Mechanicals are back! Our Olivier Award-nominated, ‘fantastically funny’ ★★★★★ (Broadway World) family show, based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, returns to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse this summer.
One midsummer’s night, a band of amateur actors led by Nick Bottom staged their first ever play. It was so bold, so brilliant and so chaotic that it went down in theatre history.
Now these actors – known as the Mechanicals – are back to perform their latest masterpiece, and with half an hour to go until curtain-up, everything is in hand. The actors are (almost) assembled, the play is (nearly) rehearsed, and the audience (that’s you!) are ready. What could possibly go wrong? Everything, it turns out.
