Wilton’s Music hall is dressed beautifully by Eleanor Field with a minimalist, grey tone design and little set. This is The Faction’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, featuring an ensemble of seven actors playing all the parts.
A wonderfully innovative take on the classic comedy, with incredible physicality employed to assist the storytelling – some terrific performances make this very memorable indeed.
This is an enjoyable production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for those who know the play. A light and frothy interpretation heavy on the laughs, less so on the love.
The Faction’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is delightfully comical, making it an ideal way to spend a warm summer’s evening watching.
This summer, Selfridges have joined forces with one of the most exciting emerging young British theatre companies in the UK, The Faction, to celebrate Shakespeare400 with a new staging of Much Ado About Nothing at The reFASHIONed Theatre, a pop-up performance space inside the famous Oxford Street store.
