A Midsummer Night's Dream

Tim Supple’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM was in Sydney as part of its international tour. It was physically robust, sexy, and funny with hints of darkness. Spoken in seven languages the play was superbly told without the assistance of surtitles. In fact it was supremely funnier and more engaging than THE SYDNEY THEATRE ACTING COMPANY'S portentous/pretentious moribund production by Edward Dick last year. The sheer delight of the performers in performing accompanied by a live orchestration was refreshing and memorable.
