A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Trevor Nunn and sponsored by Ashton’s Legal plays at the New Wolsey Theatre until 9th July 2016.
“The verse is handled with microscopic precision as Nunn relocates Shakespeare’s comedy to a world of diplomats and cocktails where Theseus becomes a white-suited Mountbatten figure.” Michael Billington – The Guardian ★★★★☆
“The Raj setting for Trevor Nunn’s latest production fits like a glove, making this a really fine midsummer’s night out. It’s a happy homecoming and a mighty achievement”
Dominic Maxwell – The Times ★★★★☆
“Sir Trevor may have left A Midsummer Night’s Dream to last, but it is a masterpiece to complete his directorial canon on.”
Glen Pearce – The Review Hub
“It’s a visually rich production, played with great style and pace by the large, very experienced cast… fast, inventive, thoughtful and hugely entertaining”
Andrew Clarke, East Anglian Daily Times
“The boy from Northgate Grammar School has done Ipswich, and the New Wolsey proud. Thank you Sir.”
Tony Bell – Grapevine
“A diverse cast breathe new life into the comedy”
Paul Vale – The Stage ★★★☆☆
