By William Shakespeare

Enter a world of dreams and desire in this soulful and spellbinding comedy.

The Watermill Ensemble return following the success of Twelfth Night at Wilton’s in 2018.

Fizzing with magic and a large dose of chaos in an enchanted Victorian music hall, secrets, love and mistaken identities collide in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Fusing actor musicianship with one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, the Watermill Ensemble cast their spell performing the intoxicating soulful sounds of Nina Simone and Billie Holiday live on stage.

The Watermill Theatre is a regional producing theatre touring work across the UK. Recent touring productions include The Wipers Times, Crazy For You and Amélie.

The Watermill Ensemble was formed in 2017 and has developed a unique approach to Shakespeare, touring to thousands of people in the UK and internationally. 

A Midsummer Night's Dream is performed in repertory with Watermill Theatre's Macbeth (22nd January 2020 – 8th February 2020).

Tickets for schools available for £10, with one free teacher ticket for every 10 students. To book please email info@wiltons.org.uk or call 020 7702 2789 (Mon – Fri, 11am – 6pm). Education pack available here.
