The film adaptation of the RSC's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream

Set in a contemporary landscape, immersed in vibrant colour, former RSC Artistic Director, Adrian Noble, makes use of stunning special effects to create a fresh, inspiring and hugely entertaining Shakespearean spectacle.We are drawn into a world of magic, fantasy, imagination, romance and love; where fairies mix with lovers and players and everything is not quite what it seems. The introduction of a new character, The Boy, adds a new dimension, as we enter into his fantasy dream world one midsummer night.
