“I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.”
The woods outside Athens are truly bustling on this night!
Runaway lovers, mischievous fairies, their feuding king and queen and the rehearsals of a band of amateur actors make this one of Shakespeare’s most loved plays.
Using the play’s original language in combination with traditional folk music played live, choral song and modern characterisation, this beautiful adaptation will captivate audiences of all ages.
Join us as we take a journey into this magical world.

About the company: This is my Theatre was formed in 2016 by Sarah Slator, who has directed and movement directed for companies including Chapterhouse Theatre Company, Icon Theatre, Quill and Inkling and The Hawth Theatre. The aim of the company is to produce classical plays and literature that are accessible to all, particularly those living in rural communities. As such, Sarah is delighted that after successful tours last year, the company will continue to work with The Churches Conservation Trust to stage productions in their ancient buildings and develop new relationships with historic places and open-air spaces in 2018.
“There is something very special about creating work for our varied venues. The architecture and features of a space are intrinsic to the way we stage our shows and as each venue is so unique, no two performances are ever the same. I love that!” Sarah Slator, Artistic Director This is my Theatre
