Category: Art & Culture Date: Monday, 01 January 0001 With just weeks to go until this year's run of A Midsummer Night's Dream comes to an end on October 12th, now is the time to book your tickets to the Globe Theatre. Employing Renaissance costumes and staging, this highly authentic version of Shakespeare's hilarious comedy is a real treat. John Light puts in a powerful and imposing turn as Oberon and Theseus, with Michelle Terry his dismissive love interest as Titania and Hippolyta. However, the show is stolen by the side-splittingly funny Pearce Quigley as Bottom, the leader of the Rude Mechanicals, whose farcical play within a play leaves the crowd in stitches. For the best views yet also the best value, stand in front of the stage in the yard for just £5 - a bargain price to soak up the atmosphere of London's finest theatre. Just across the river you'll find the luxurious 41 hotel, where you can also get some excellent value for money by taking advantage of the 3 nights for the price of 2 offer.
