Lysander loves Hermia and Hermia loves Lysander. Helena loves Demetrius; Demetrius used to love Helena but now loves Hermia. When Hermia's father insists she choose Demetrius as a suitor she escapes with Lysander into the surrounding forest where Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of the Fairies are having their own battle of love. As the human and magical worlds collide mischief and chaos erupt as love at first sight proves a reality for some and makes an ass of others. (Read more at broadwayworld.com)

"Grandage's production is sexy, swift and sure-footed, a constant delight to the eye and never lets us forget that this is a play about the magical capacity for change. As Gavin Fowler's Puck spreads his final blessing over the audience, we too feel transported." - The Guardian

"This is a fine Dream. Mr Walliams co-stars with the constantly, impertinently, humorously sexy Sheridan Smith, whose Titania falls in love with Bottom when he is a donkey." - Daily Mail

"Grandage, however, knows exactly what he is doing with the piece...Shakespeare has seldom, if ever, seemed sexier." - The Telegraph
