You’re invited to spend an enchanting evening with the film and theatre company as Rendlesham Forest comes alive with fairies, magic and laughter with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It’s a re-imagining of Theatre in the Forest director Joanna Carrick’s 2006 production which won rave reviews.

Hermia runs away with her boyfriend to escape marrying a man she doesn’t love. But the young couple soon find themselves lost in the woods in Shakespeare’s hilarious romantic comedy.

For the first time in its ten-year history, Theatre In The Forest will begin this month.

More than 9,000 people were captivated by The Winter’s Tale last summer; the popularity of this production means A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be the longest running Theatre In The Forest season ever. It will even boast real magic, as one of the cast is a member of the Magic Circle.

Visitors can book a picnic or bring their own, meet the cast or hang around to party afterwards at one of the company’s special event nights.
