A Midsummer Night's Dream

Midsummer Night's Dream

Directed by Tom Morris in association with Handspring Puppet Company.

Having last worked worked together on the internationally acclaimed Warhorse, BOV’s Artistic Director Tom Morris and Cape Town’s Handspring Puppet Company reunite to begin a new collaboration prior to a world tour. The magical play unfurls in the intimacy of the refurbished Old Vic, interweaving the lives of lovers, actors, friends, foes and fairies. This is a world in which, thanks to the magic of Handspring, all objects are granted the right to life. I must add that like Warhorse, this is not a puppet show but a play enhanced by the use of puppets. A wonderful opportunity to see something really original.
