For the first time since the triumph of War Horse, Bristol Old Vic's Artistic Director Tom Morris and Handspring Puppet Company reunite to realise one of Shakespeare’s most popular and fantastical plays.
A shape-shifting Puck is conjured from a selection of workman’s tools. An eight-foot-tall Titania presides over a troupe of malevolent fairies. And a giant, controlling Oberon manipulates his fairy queen and meddles in the confusion of the squabbling lovers.
This is a delightful production, a riotous display of irreverent comedy in which anything can come to life and be transformed.
