There 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.

Drama teacher Fiona Earle, who will be heading the production, said: “We have a tremendous amount of pupils that have a superb ability to perform on stage, and this is going to ensure our version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is going to something not to be missed.”
