2011091120120513As part of the BBC's Shakespeare Unlocked season another chance to hear Radio 3's summer production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.|The play revolves around the adventures of four young lovers, a group of amateur actors and their interactions with the fairies who inhabit a moonlit forest. The story takes place in Midsummer and is a complex farce featuring Hermia and Lysander, Helena and Demetrius. Their romantic intrigues are confused and complicated still further by entering the forest where Oberon King of the fairies and his queen Titania, preside. Puck (or Robin Goodfellow) is a major character who is full of mischief and tricks. Other visitors to the enchanted forest include Bottom, the Weaver and his friends Snug, Snout, Quince and Flute, the amateur dramatists who want to rehearse their terrible but hilarious version of the play Pyramus and Thisbe.|Recorded last summer on location in 22 acres of Sussex woodland, this production has an all star cast.|Director: Celia de Wolff|Music by Stephanie Nunn|Titania....Lesley Sharp|Oberon....Toby Stephens|Peter Quince....Robert Pugh|Nick Bottom....Roger Allam|Puck....Freddie Fox|Theseus....Nicholas Farrell|Hippolyta....Emma Fielding|Lysander....Joseph Timms|Demetrius....Ferdinand Kingsley|Hermia....Emerald O'Hanrahan|Helena....Anna Madeley|Egeus / Starveling....David Collings|Philostrate / Snug....Nicholas Boulton|Fairy....Sara Markland|Francis Flute....Sam Alexander|Tom Snout....Sam Dale|Peaseblossom....Jessica Sian|Cobweb....Jay Carter|Moth....Tressa Brooks|Mustardseed....Stuart Walker.|The play revolves around the adventures of four young lovers, a group of amateur actors and their interactions with the fairies who inhabit a moonlit forest.|The story takes place in Midsummer and is a complex farce featuring Hermia and Lysander, Helena and Demetrius.|Their romantic intrigues are confused and complicated still further by entering the forest where Oberon King of the fairies and his queen Titania, preside.|Puck (or Robin Goodfellow) is a major character who is full of mischief and tricks.|Other visitors to the enchanted forest include Bottom, the Weaver and his friends Snug, Snout, Quince and Flute, the amateur dramatists who want to rehearse their terrible but hilarious version of the play Pyramus and Thisbe.|Recorded this summer on location in 22 acres of Sussex woodland, this production has an all star cast.|Adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy centring on the adventures of four young lovers.
