The Lyric and Filter’s riotous reinterpretation of one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays returns after its critically acclaimed 2012 run.

Featuring music from members of The London Snorkelling Team, this classic tale of young lovers and warring fairies is given a unique and irreverent twist. 

Filter's riotous production is back for just two performances to launch a UK tour. (Reviewed in 2016)

Ages 14+

“Shows how hootingly funny this play can be... It’s quite a new experience to come away from Shakespeare with aching sides. ”

Arts Desk (other reviewers)

“A feast of invention... a comic, meta-theatrical romp... Gleefully irreverent towards the text, and knock-you-sideways funny. ”

Holly Williams (What's On Stage, Time Out, Independent)

“Metatheatrics that leave the stage in a state, but don’t trample on Shakespeare... Raucously enjoyable. ”

Tom Wicker (Time Out, The Stage, Telegraph)

“Crowd-pleasing... Fizzes with vitality, never straying into cloying whimsy, and there are enjoyably robust performances. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)
