A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Wondrous, but terrifying.” – Daily Review Australia

At once anarchic and tightly controlled: mesmerising, funny, gory, sexy, confronting… The result is a brooding and pungent Midsummer Night, more nightmare than dream.” – Time Out Sydney

Frankly eye-opening… some of the most astonishing and iconoclastic theatre, full of spirit; adventurous, brave and ostentatious.” – Suzy Wrong
