Join us in the bar every night before the show for a drink


Reading Rep Theatre proudly presents Shakespeare’s seminal work, a party for all this summer.

A riotous, raucous and riveting night out, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the story of love in all its confusion.

Artistic Director Paul Stacey’s adaptation is a spectacularly fun play within a play within a play. A professional acting troupe of six outrageous performers arrive in Reading to perform in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Mistakes, potions and a couple of pints are sure to make the event one to remember.

This electric production is the perfect night out, whilst also indulging in the original beauty of Shakespeare’s classic.

Suitable for all the family.
