During an engagement party thrown by Theo and Polly for their daughter Hermia and James, a man she grew up with but doesn't really love, Hermia's true love Xander shows up. After Hermia declares her engagement to James is off, it becomes clear that her best friend Helena has been in love with James all along. When the King and Queen of the Fairies (themselves feuding) decide to straighten things out with a love potion, their meddling goes terribly wrong and the relationships between all those involved become even murkier than they were.

A dream performance
29 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Having been brought up about 10 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, (the Bard's birthplace), I regularly frequented the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre there. Consequently I've always loved his works and viewed this performance with trepidation.

Not being a great fan of "upgrading" Shakespeare, even the thought of his words spoken in a 21st century setting makes me wince with pain. However this production dispelled my doubts. The modern lingo was beautifully scripted and gustily played. I must confess that "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is not one of my favourite Shakespeare plays, but I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful effort. It was chirpy, bright, extremely witty, and lost none of the flavour of the original. I think even old Will himself would have been proud of it. Well done everyone!
