Sport for Jove is proud to present A Midsummer Night’s Dream as part of their 2022/2023 Summer Season, at Bella Vista Farm from the 16 to 30 December.
In an outdoor setting, audiences will be immersed into the magical world of this Shakespearean tale, following the journey of two young couples and a handful of aspiring actors. In this dark and stormy take on Shakespeare’s magical comedy, one moonlit night will change their lives forever.
For over four centuries, spellbound audiences have taken that journey with them, making A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. Audiences will journey to a place where reality, fantasy, dream, and nightmare collide. A place where social convention implodes to reveal what lies beneath us all; our funny, quaint, and perplexing need to love and be loved.
Director Sean O’Shea says “I have been such a long-time admirer of Sport for Jove’s work and am thrilled to be joining such an amazing team. The Jove Summer Season has become such an important part of Sydney’s theatre calendar, and I can’t wait to bring our version of Shakespeare’s much-loved comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Bella Vista ”.
Featuring stellar performances from Claudia Ware (Ensemble Theatre’s Nearer the Gods), Jake Speer (Channel 7’s Home & Away), Wendy Strehlow (Channel 7’s A Country Practice), Jade Fuda (CDP’s Magic Beach), Darius Williams (Channel 7’s Home & Away), Rupert Bevan (Sydney theatre debut), Toby Blome (Foxtel’s The Twelve), Bishanyia Vincent (Hayes Theatre’s Dubbo Championship Wrestling) & Giles Gartrell- Mills (Sport For Jove’s Othello), and directed by Sean O’Shea (Sydney Theatre Company, Melbourne Theatre Company, Queensland Theatre Company, Western Australia Theatre Company, Bell Shakespeare, Ensemble Theatre, Griffin Theatre Company, Belvoir, Hayes Theatre Company), A Midsummer Night’s Dream invites audiences to come and celebrate the healing power of love under the stars.
