Back by popular demand, Butterfly Theatre Company are delighted to return to Puzzlewood with their sell-out production of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', in association with Puzzlewood to celebrate Shakespeare 400 year. 

Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream comes alive in the magical surroundings of Puzzlewood. The King and Queen of the fairies are fighting. The mischievous Puck, the naughtiest of the fairies, tries to magic things better but only makes things worse. Lovers lose their way and workmen rehearsing a play for the wedding of the year lose their heads! As fairies frolic through the labyrinth, music rings out through the leaves bestowing fairy magic on all who enter the woods.

You will be enthralled by this unique retelling of Shakespeare's most beloved comedy. Come and be transported as you follow the actors around this historic entrancing woodland. You will see the play, and the woods, like you've never seen or heard them before.
