WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

On a midsummer's night Hermia and her lover Lysander flee from Athens and Demetrius - the man Hermia's father favours as a son-in-law. Demetrius follows, pursued by Helena who loves him in spite of being spurned in favour of Hermia. On the same night Bottom and his friends leave Athens to find somewhere quiet to rehearse their play which is to be performed at the wedding feast of Duke Theseus. Drawn into the woods they enter a world of magic, mystery and wonder.

Renowned for combining an intelligent interrogation of text with a powerful group physicality, The Faction's new production is fresh in linguistic detail and packed with unforgettable visual moments ? from the raw power of the fairies' rituals to an ass's head created entirely from arms and fingers.
