A Midsummer Nights Dream 
Saturday 30th June 2018

Begins its summer run at Essex Wildlife Trust, Belfairs Woodland Centre

Four lovers escape the decorum of the royal courts, eluding tradition and etiquette on one fateful, intoxicating night in the Athenian woods.

Secrets, love and mistaken identities collide with a fusion of rich and beautiful music inspired by the hedonistic soulful sounds of Nina Simone and Billie Holiday.

Hermia is to be married to Demetrius.But she actually loves Lysander and after the lovers runaway to marry in secret, pursued by Demetrius, who has been told by Helena of their plan, all respectability begins to unravel.

Enter an enchanted world of dreams and passion, where the powerful spirits of a midsummerís night will put a spell on you.
