See Shakespeare's most beloved comedy how it was intended in this season from New Zealand's Pop-up Globe
Pop-up Globe is a replica of the Globe Theatre of 1614, built to the exact specifications of the Bard and his players. This is how the most popular plays in the world were born and staged: with natural light and unplugged sound, a standing audience of general admission ‘groundlings’, direct-audience address, and dirty jokes telegraphed with obscene gestures.
That open-air environment will perfectly suit Shakespeare's rambling romp A Midsummer Night's Dream, which follows two pairs of lovers as they become lost in the woods on a particularly magical evening. This production is performed by an all-male cast and draws in elements of Māori culture.
