Singapore Repertory Theatre

A Midsummer Night's Dream

From 3 May 2023 | Fort Canning Park

The critically acclaimed Shakespeare in the Park returns with the popular comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream – a romantic comedy filled with mischief and magic.

Enjoy your picnic under the night sky as the industrial kingdom of Athenia transforms into an enchanted dreamworld of moonlit water and fairyland mayhem.

'The course of true love never did run smooth …'

The Fairy King and Queen are at war, four young lovers have eloped to the forest, and a group of tradesmen are rehearsing a play. But it is Midsummer Night and Puck, as chief mischief-maker, is pulling pranks to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth. Puck's magic spells cause the lovers to change their allegiance, and one of the tradesmen, Nick Bottom, undergoes a shocking transformation.

Can the magic of fairyland be reversed before sunrise or will Athenia be turned upside down forever? Find out in this evening of theatrical wonder at another Shakespeare in the Park spectacle.
