By William Shakespeare

For 4 nights in June 2014, Deafinitely Theatre returned to Shakespeare's Globe with a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia… When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and walk into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies.

A teasing, glittering, very funny and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.

★★★★ "It worked a dream for both the hearing and the deaf for both the hearing and the deaf… A ridiculous, riotous farce." The Reviews Hub

"A highly innovative visual storytelling method" Disability Arts Online 

"Perfectly encapsulates Deafinitely’s mission to provide a theatrical experience that is inclusive of both Deaf and hearing people…" Exuent Magazine
