A Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1595/96.
It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons.
These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.
The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.
Bringing the Chiltern Shakespeare Company’s summer season to a close, on a warm summer evening we intend to entertain and to charm with a special evening.
This popular anthology was devised by John Barton in 1961 and features, in dramatic form, poetry, songs, speeches, letters and other writings associated with the British monarchy from William the Conqueror to Queen Victoria.
The special performance will be in The Long Parlour at Hall Barn.
Ay me, for aught that I could ever read,
Could ever hear by tale or history,
The course of true love never did run smooth. . .

We are fortunate to call Hall Barn our home for our productions.
In 2018, we were fortunate to be able to fly a drone over the site and the embedded video shows the meadow, auditorium and visitor facilities.
