A co-production between the Royal Shakespeare Company and amateur companies across the UK

This is an arrangement developed between the RSC and Equity


In 2016, the nation’s favourite Shakespeare play was performed as never before.

The RSC and amateur companies around the UK took audiences on a very special Midsummer adventure with a unique production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

From March – July we toured 12 different venues across the country, making wonderful memories and friends along the way.

You can browse the blogs on this website to re-live our journey or find out more about the Royal Shakespeare Company at www.rsc.org.uk.

Thank you to everyone that was part #Dream2016.
