This summer, The Jervis Bay Maritime Museum proudly presents Essential Theatre’s performance of Shakespeare’s magical comedy – A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The cast of eight professional actors will take you on a spell binding ride, as the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum grounds are transformed into the magical land of Athens. On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites play and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their bumbling mates presenting a play within a play. Leading mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most wondrous comedy. Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has been loved for over four hundred years and continues to weave it’s spells world wide.
