‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’

The Essex Theatre Arts Society present their production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream!

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers caught in a dispute of increasingly magical proportions. A group of wannabe actors determined to put on a play against the odds and one wild spirit is hell-bent on causing as much havoc as possible.

As the lovers’ dispute grows, the magical fairy couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Join us on Thursday 16 or Friday 17 February. Doors at 7.30pm.

Directed by Elise Roberts and Angelina Harvey, with Eben McCarthy as Lighting Designer.
