A Midsummer Night's Dream

Dreamlike, imaginative and delightful, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's most popular romantic comedy shows the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens.

Follow the adventures of four young lovers and the hilarious Rude Mechanicals (a group of incompetent amateur actors), all of whom are manipulated by the antics of the fairies inhabiting the woods.

Let EODS welcome you to the lovely setting of the Italian Gardens for an unforgettable summer's evening of outdoor theatre.

Tea, coffee, wine, beer and a fine array of homemade cakes are available onsite from the EODS Refreshment Marquee.
