What a perfect way to while away some pleasant hours on a spring afternoon.

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

A Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1590 and 1597. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals), who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.

This 1971 version is a truly all-star production for theater buffs featuring Lynn Redgrave, Michael Gambon, Eileen Atkins, Edward Fox, Eleanor Bron, Robert Stephens and Ronnie Barker (as Bottom). Set in Edwardian England and shot on location in and around Scotney Castle in Kent.
