Shakespeare in the Park: A Midsummer Night's Dream
06:00pm - 10:30pm, Saturday, 29 January 2022
Save to calendar
At Saw Avenue Amphitheatre Kings Park, Western Australia
Theatre, Summer Events

Fremantle Theatre Company's new run of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream is a hilarious presentation of a classic so good, so funny and so very well suited for a magical night under the stars.

A bawdy band of gypsies in a holiday caravan with four wayward inner-city lovers, and a tribe of woodland sprites...these three tribes accidentally go to war, under the moonlight of a perfect summer's night.

Set among WA's naturally picturesque parks this beautiful bard is sure to entertain!
