Midsummer Night's Dream (1986)
By William Shakespeare
Directed by David Conville and Emma Freud from Toby Robertson's 1985 production, this 1986 version of A Midsummer Night's Dream starred some of the most recognisable faces in British theatre including park regular Ralph Fiennes, a 'pale and interesting' (Financial Times) Lysander. Hugh Bonneville launched his career as an alternate Lysander. This 'carefree and aimiable' (The London Standard) production, transported audiences back to an Elizabethan travelling theatre.
