“This is one of the best and most exciting productions of this great play I have seen, ever.” The Sunday Times

TUE 26 – SAT 30 NOVEMBER Fresh, funny and beautifully lyrical, Propeller’s multi-award-winning production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream has enchanted packed houses all over the world. In Shakespeare’s most magical play, love and illusion collide when two pairs of lovers become entangled in fairy mischief on the eve of a Royal Wedding. Dreams and reality become interchangeable and romantic chaos ensues. In Propeller’s Dream, seeing really is believing! Propeller is an internationally renowned all-male Shakespeare company. Led by director Edward Hall, they combine a rigorous approach to the text with an exciting and modern physical aesthetic. One thing is certain – nobody does Shakespeare like Propeller.

‘I’ve been hooked on Propeller’s work since I saw my first performance several years ago. Their performances are full of energy and exuberance, and whilst being hugely inventive the classical text shines through. I’m delighted that they are coming to the Swan for the first of hopefully many visits.’ Simon Stallworthy Theatre Director, Wycombe Swan
