A Midsummer Night's Dream
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Emma Rice
Puppetry by Blind Summit Theatre
Puppet designed and made by Lindie Wright
Fusing music, dance and some serious comedy, Emma Rice’s first production as Artistic Director brought the Dream crashing into the Globe’s magical setting. Naughty, tender, transgressive and surprising.
Blind Summit were commissioned by Shakespeare's Globe to direct the Changeling Boy puppet.
Premiere: Shakespeare's Globe, June 2016
