Join us as we transform the Capitol Theatre into the Bridge Theatre in London! We are very excited to screen this incredible and hilarious National Theatre Live production in our theatre!!

The course of true love never did run smooth.   Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy is 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 (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom. 

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 meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is an immersive staging: The Bridge Theatre becomes a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.
