Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia… When
the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst
of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies. Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling
dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play,
whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.

Recorded live at the unique Globe Theatre in London this presentation provides the opportunity to see one of Shakespeare's most famous productions as Shakespeare himself may have seen it.

JOHN


'Outstandingly effective and gripping dance theatre. A brilliant performance by Hannes Langolf'
Dagens Nyheter, Sweden


JOHN is a new verbatim dance-theatre work by Lloyd Newson, Artistic Director of DV8 Physical Theatre. Newson interviewed more than 50 men asking them frank questions, initially about love and sex. One of those men was John.

What emerged was a story that is both extraordinary and touching. Years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive lead John on a search in which his life converges with others, in an unexpected place, unknown by most. JOHN authentically depicts real-life stories, where movement and spoken word combine to create an intense, moving and poignant theatrical experience.

...and that’s why I come here, because it’s another door that’s opened, you never know where this is gonna lead.

It’s a dark, stormy night. The stars are out. Jim, the inn-keeper’s granddaughter, opens the door to a terrifying stranger. At the old sailor’s feet sits a huge sea-chest, full of secrets. Jim invites him in – and her dangerous voyage begins.

This winter, Robert Louis Stevenson’s story of murder, money and mutiny is brought to life on the Olivier stage in a thrilling new adaptation by Bryony Lavery.

Not one of us must breathe a word of what we’ve found...
