Pack a picnic and something to sit on to make yourselves comfortable in the grounds of Oystermouth Castle for an evening of lively theatre on Friday 13 August 2021.

London-based Quantum Theatre are touring the UK this summer with their wonderfully funny and exuberant production of Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy, A Midsummer’s Night Dream.

The play Shakespeare’s most enduringly popular comedy of love and intrigue, mystery and mayhem. Expect lively music and playful adventure as we journey into an enchanted world of magic, laughter and healing.

A Midsummer’s Night Dream is a Quantum Theatre production brought to Mumbles by Swansea Council.


A Midsummer’s Night Dream is a story of four interlinked plots set in a mythical forest within the realm of Fairyland. We join the play’s characters as Theseus, the Duke of Athens, prepares to marry Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons.

While the wedding celebrations are underway, mayhem and mischief unfold around them, with four Athenian lovers getting lost in the woods, and six amateur actors rehearsing the play they will perform at the wedding. However, unbeknown to them all, they are all being manipulated and toyed with by the fairies who live in the forest.

This exciting, funny and intriguing production by Michael Whitmore presents the whole text in a fast-paced, accessible and easily understandable style.

The performance will begin in the grounds of Oystermouth Castle at 7.30pm on Friday 13 August. Running time is 2 hours including 15 minutes interval.

“There are barrels upon barrels of laughter with this performance, there is never a dull moment. With only a small company of actors, the scenes are constantly flowing and there is never an awkward silence for a costume or scene changes.” Gemma Hirst
