Regent’s Park Outdoor Theatre is bringing Shakespeare’s comedy back into its programme after a seven-year break. The play featured in the theatre’s first full season back in 1933, becoming the first of almost 50 different productions to take the stage at the theatre over the next 80 years. The comeback is a new production directed by Dominic Hill, multi-award winning artistic director of the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow.
The tale of desire, confusion, jealousy and theatricality has established itself as a firm summertime favourite: with a wedding, multiple lovers and fairies galore, what’s not to love? Regent’s Park Outdoor Theatre certainly offers a worthy setting for the classic: it’s one of the largest auditoria in London and the oldest professional permanent outdoor theatre in Britain, its 18-week season attracting over 140,000 theatre-goers each year.
As Shakespeare’s enchanted world is transformed into a place of magic and laughter on stage, Regent’s Park promises to turn the the audience’s night into an equally fantastical experience.
