Enter A World of Flying Fairies and Moonlight Revels During A Midsummer Nights Dream

Are you a Shakespearean? Join us at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth on December 11th at 2 p.m. for National Theatre Live: A Midsummers Night's Dream!

The course of true love never did run smooth. A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddles with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities, and transformation with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!), and Hammed Animashaun (Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck, and Bottom. Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018).

The Bridge Theatre will become a forest—a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs, and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot. A Midsummers Night's Dream is presented by Amphibian Stage in partnership with the Modern.
