A Dream Of An Early Autumn Night

The musicians signal the start of the play

As the months tick over into double figures the memory of summer is fading with autumn’s arrival but there was just time to catch the tail end of the season at the Globe. There Heather and I had A Midsummer’s Night Dream watching lovers led a merry dance in the land of the fairies.

It’s a play I’d never seen performed before, though it seems everyone knows the basics of the tale, with the confusion of lovers and an asses head. I think seeing it played out makes it much clearer than trying to read (or read up on). I particularly enjoyed watching Pearce Quigley’s Bottom (ohhh er!) and the inventive portrayal of the fairy woods.
