A Midsummer Night’s Dream

From June 27 to 29, Balally Players is bringing Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to life in a refreshing and inventive production.

In the garden setting at St Enda’s, the story follows two pairs of young lovers in an evocative, joyful and funny piece of theatre. They journey into the spirit world with Oberon, Titania, Puck and two diminutive fairies and as night falls in the park.

Gates open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and seating is available. The group recommend you bring a throw or an extra layer of clothing, for later in the performance, as it can get chilly, on certain nights.
