Oxford 2012. Midsummer in Wadham College. Hormones are raging, lovers are arguing, fairies are fighting and Oberon still can't find his Zen.

Welcome to the Dream, set in the very gardens in which it's performed.

As the lovers journey outside the safety of their college walls they are forced to find themselves and fight for love, never mind put up tents and survive a night in "the wilderness".

These are the students, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters that we all know - packed off to university to become adults but whose youthful rebellion leads them into more fairy related trouble than they could ever have imagined.

Mayhem, mirth and more than a drop of Midsummer madness combine in this incredible open air setting for a production that is bold, brave and bursting through the centuries.

Admission: £20(£15)
