On the hottest night of the year, young lovers Hermia and Lysander run away from the rules of the city and into the freedom of the forest. Close on their heels are Helena and Demetrius. Demetrius is chasing Hermia, Helena is chasing Demetrius, no one is chasing Helena… yet.

Into a forest of rough magic they go, but this is no fairytale. Helpmann Award-winning Resident Director Kip Williams (Suddenly Last Summer) continues his bold interpretations of Shakespeare’s great plays withA Midsummer Night’s Dream. This production will reclaim the text’s deep heart, revealing a comedy as complex and detailed as any tragedy.

Along for the ride are Josh McConville (After Dinner), who brings his comedic know-how to the boisterous Bottom, and the exciting new talents of Robert Collins (Disney’sThe Lion King) and Honey Debelle (ABC TV’s ANZAC Girls) making their STC debuts as two corners of the fabulously convoluted love quadrangle.

See you in the forest.
