The Globe Theatre is #10 in our London Bucket List

Director: Sean Holmes; Written by: William Shakespeare

A Midsummer Night's Dream follows the complicated love life of two couples, which is complicated even further by the arrival of the King and Queen of the Fairies, Oberon and Titania.

Lysander loves Hermia, who herself loves Lysander. And Helena loves Demetrius, who used to love Helena but now loves Hermia. When Hermia's father insists that she choose Demetrius, Hermia runs off into the forest with Lysander... where Oberon and Titania are having their own battle of love.

As the real and unreal worlds collide, romance struggles to survive and unlikely unions are forged.

Note: the Globe's theatre season runs from April to October. Craig has been to watch a play at the Globe himself and thoroughly recommends it because it's not like any other theatre you've ever seen -- it's all open-air, for a start, and it has a standing area in the middle (called 'The Yard'). The actors sometimes parade through this yard during the scenes, and end up involving the crowd as if they were part of the cast. Read Craig's review of watching a play at the Globe before you go, so you can get a feeling for what it's like inside.
