A Midsummer Night's DreamBristol Old Vic's Artistic Director Tom Morris and Cape Town's Handspring Puppet Company reunite for the first time since War Horse to bring Shakespeare's magical A Midsummer Night's Dream to the Barbican. Mixing live actors and puppets - Puck is made from workman's tools and Titania is eight feet tall - this is a "gleefully vulgar" interpretation, according to the Financial Times: "funny, filthy and consistently watchable, not least for its bare-faced cheek(s)." Featuring semi-nudity, a troupe of malevolent fairies, and a giant Oberon, the audience is required to suspend disbelief as the 'dream' and drug-assisted confusion unfolds. Not suitable for under 12s.

Ugly or not, this multi-faceted performance and arts venue is truly wondrous. Open 363 days a year, it offers the most diverse program of any London venue. More about Barbican Centre
