With a fresh eye toward the changes to the HSC Syllabus in 2019, Sport For Jove’s Artistic Director, Damien Ryan will bring the full force of his acclaimed theatricality and invention to a brand new vision of Shakespeare’s astonishing classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 100 minutes of pure theatrical magic. Don’t miss it.
In the heat of the shortest night of the year, young lovers and work-a-day dreamers plunge into a world between sleep and waking, where “everything seems double”. One of Shakespeare’s truly essential works, ‘Dream’, like every fairy-story, warns us that family, love and friendship are fragile – when parents are selfish, their children break the rules; when love rears its head, friendships are forgotten; and that’s just the mortal world. The best possible introduction young people can have to the theatre and among the most powerful visions of growing up ever written.
