The theatre becomes the forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels. The seating is wrapped around the action while the immersive tickets allow the story to be followed on foot.
Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing), David Moorst (Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Festival) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom. The production also re-unites the team responsible for last year’s smash-hit Julius Caesar. Direction is by Nicholas Hytner, design by Bunny Christie, costume by Christina Cunningham, lighting by Bruno Poet and sound by Paul Arditti. Joining the team will be composer Grant Olding, movement director Arlene Phillips, and associate movement director James Cousins.
To be immersed in the action you should select ‘pit’ when booking tickets. This will mean you will stand for the performance and move around as the story develops around you. There may be elements of participation for those with these tickets (but don’t worry, you won’t have a speaking role!). Scroll down and watch the videos made around Julius Caesar which was our first immersive production to find out more about the pit experience.
At the Bridge Theater until 31 August 2019
