The Mercury Theatre Company will be performing Shakespeare's tale of fairies and hobgoblins, appropriately enough during the month of June.

The story sees some starry-eyed lovers and a group of bumbling amateur actors rehearsing a play for a Royal Wedding becoming involved with the fairies and hobgoblins.  The problem, however, is that they are at their most mischievous around the time of Midsummer's Eve.

The Result: Both chaos and confusion!

The play is directed by Nikolai Foster, who broke all Mercury Theatre records in 2005 with her production of 'Of Mice & Men', so expectations are high for a similarly successful run.

A Midsummer Night's Dream is on at the Mercury Theatre from the 1st to the 17th of June.  Tickets cost from £7.00-£18.50.
