"Lord, what fools these mortals be".....
Mayhem Theatre Company returns to Wimbledon following previous sell out Shakespeare productions.
Performed over four consecutive nights as well as one matinee in the outdoor splendour of Cannizaro Park, Mayhem promise to present a memorable interpretation of Shakespeare's much-loved comedy.
In this ever-popular comedy, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a company of hapless actors and malicious sprites cross paths with the King and Queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute. Audiences will be transported to a tainted supernatural forest overflowing with possibilities where the unexplainable magic of falling in love – and the marvel of waking up from the sweetest of dreams – is discovered.
Chaos, confusion, trickery and skullduggery reign in this fresh, joyful and accessible interpretation of the Shakespeare’s most loved comedy.
The beautiful setting of Cannizaro Park will once again provide a stunning backdrop for this year’s open-air performances (this year performed in the round with amplified sound) and will continue Mayhem’s popular summer tradition of bringing the Bard to South London.

7.45pm (park open from 7pm). Also a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday
