Royal Shakespeare Company

Lila made her RSC debut in A Midsummer NIght’s Dream, understudying and playing Helena and Hippolyta alongside the role of Moth. 

The nation’s favourite Shakespeare play, performed as never before.

A co-production between the Royal Shakespeare Company and amateur companies across the UK.

In 2016, the RSC and amateur companies around the UK had very special Midsummer adventure with a unique production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.

Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman directed 18 professional actors with local amateur groups around the UK as Shakespeare’s Mechanicals.
