The course of true love never did run smooth… 

Jenny Wren Productions present Shakespeare’s ever popular and beloved summertime classic, set in the roaring ’20s. 

Theseus and Hippolyta invite you to celebrate their wedding, alongside four lovers, some feisty fairies and an unlikely theatre troupe frolicking in a forest!  

With luscious language, live music, laughs aplenty and a little touch of magic, join this small company of “rude mechanicals” for an enchanting summer’s evening in an outdoor venue near you.

Director Jenny Wicks says, ‘We are so excited to finally be able to tour our roaring '20s Midsummer Night's Dream, originally intended for summer 2020, complete with fantastic live music from the period, and some fabulous costumes.  The show has been two years in the making, and we have a great team on board, and we can't wait to share it with audiences around Gloucestershire and beyond.’ 

Acclaimed for their fast-paced and zany interpretations, Jenny Wren Productions bring their inimitable style to this summer classic, perfect for a summer evening’s entertainment. 

Previous productions have included Emma, Twelfth Night and, most recently, The Railway Children and Little Women.
