Living the Dream!

This production of The Dream was exceptional. Sheridan Smith, David Walliams and Katherine Kingsley deserve special mention, although everyone was excellent. Loved every minute of it, particularly the spliff loving fairies! Go and see it!

A Great Show!

If you're not a Shakespeare fan and don't think you'll get it this is the production to see. The acting and interpretation was so good it made it easy to understand, incredibly enjoyable and included moments of absolute hilarity. And of course David Walliams' Bottom is a must see!

Midsummer's Night Dream at its very best

An excellent production. David Walliams was perfect as Bottom bringing out all the comedy in the original words. He has superb timing. The 4 actors playing the lovers were excellent. Sheridan Smith as Titania was very good but the part does not really rate the "star" publicity given to her. On e weakness I felt was Padraic Delaney as Oberon/ Theseus who never really rose to the parts and came across as very wooden. Excellent portrayal of Puck by Richard Demsey.All school children studying the play should have the opportunity of seeing a production like this. Shakeseare at its best.

David Walliams camps up his bottom!

I tried to do some 'homework' before attending this show so that I knew the basic storyline, characters etc. However, life took over and that didn't happen! Thankfully due to the fantastic acting the story unfolded and I enjoyed every minute. The set was so clever and the costumes original. Well done to the cast - a truly memorable afternoon.

Worth seeing

It is a fast paced and vivacious show. sheridan Smith is fantastic as Titania as our the actors taht play the four young lovers. Unfortunately David Walliams just plays Frankie Howerd.

Review: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

by Marian Pashley | Thursday, July 4 2019, 14:43

A Midsummer Night's Dream - Open Air Theatre I love the open air theatre in Regent's Park, it is one of London's special places, even when it rains. To see a production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM on a balmy midsummer night, in a forest (well, the trees do cradle the stage) when so much of its action takes place in such a setting, is a real treat. When the production is also visually striking and the actors not only excellent Shakespearean performers but able to punch the humour to the front of their performance, well, you are really onto a winner.
