Production key info / links

The Lyric and Filter’s riotous reinterpretation of one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays returns to the Lyric, after its critically acclaimed 2012 run.

This classic tale of young lovers and warring fairies is given a unique and irreverent twist.  

‘Quite brilliant.’
Independent on Sunday

‘Filter’s Dream is part rock gig, part exuberant joke, exploding the conventions of the form and remaking them in dazzling new shapes.’

Don’t miss one of the most exciting Shakespeare productions of recent years.


In Conversation: Thursday 10 March, 6.30pm

With the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death on the horizon UK theatre goers are spoilt for choice to see the Bards best works. Three of those productions are stagings of A Midsummer Night’s Dream brought to you by Shakespeare's Globe, the RSC and the Lyric Hammersmith.

Join the directors of these productions as they discuss why Dream is so appealing and cherished as one of Shakespeares best loved comedies.
