Under the setting sun, Essential Theatre invites you to relax in the grounds of the beautiful Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden and savour the performance of Shakespeare’s delightful comedy – A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

“I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was”

Eurobodalla Shire Council are proud to bring Essential Theatre back to the Botanic Gardens for two magical nights in their 17th summer of touring Shakespeare’s classics. These passionate theatre makers re-interpret the classic texts for modern audiences delivering vibrant and engaging productions. Whether you’re new to the work of Essential Theatre or a regular audience member you are guaranteed a night to remember.

Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has been loved for over four hundred years and continues to weave its spells worldwide.

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites play and fairies rule. A feuding Fairy King and Queen cross paths with Bottom, Quince and their bumbling mates presenting a play within a play.
Leading mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most wondrous comedy.
