Overview

|THEATRE AT MEGARON – NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE

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

A feud between the king and queen of fairies further complicates the lives of two couples of lovers who take refuge in a forest of Athens. Mortals and immortals fall in love, quarrel, swap identities and chase each other in a fairy tale with comical as well as romantic scenes that lead to unpredictable situations.

After the success of his staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live, 2018), Nicholas Hytner creates a dream world with flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels. A cast of fine actors in Shakespeare’s most famous and popular comedy: Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!), and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles).
