New Theatre



A Midsummer Night's Dream

Directed By Robyn McLean

new theatre is delighted to present a creative and stylish production of one of the world's best loved comedies. A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare will open Friday, July 16, and play until September 4, giving people the opportunity to relive or experience for the first time the timeless humour and characters that have charmed and excited audiences through the centuries.

Director Robyn McLean's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream will blend elements of contemporary and traditional theatrical styles, creating a unique and eclectic design.

McLean's interpretation will challenge audience's expectations, as they will be led to question their notions of Shakespeare and the nature of theatre itself.

It will be an exciting and dynamic production with something new for everyone. Benefiting from as outstanding cast and innovative director, the production will leave the audience with a sense of wonderment, "no more yielding but a dream". As McLean says, "In this play I see Shakespeare laughing at the fragility of the human heart, the magic of love and its power to send us to the heights of madness and joy, revelling in both the light and dark sides of human emotion".

All this is intertwined with a little of the supernatural and the antics of some earnest tradesmen. The audience is in for an unforgettable evening of laughter, love and illusion.
