Photos have been released offering a first look inside the rehearsal room of Nicholas Hytner's immersive production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Bridge.

Gwendoline Christie, best known for playing Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones will take on the role of Titania alongside Oliver Chris (Young Marx) as Oberon, David Moorst (Allelujah!) as Puck and Hammed Animashaun (A Monster Calls) as Bottom.


The full cast will also feature Paul Adeyefa (Demetrius), Charlotte Atkinson (Moth), Tessa Bonham Jones (Helena), Jermaine Freeman (Flute), Isis Hainsworth (Hermia), Chipo Kureya (Peasebottom), Francis Lovehall (Starveling), Kevin McMonagle (Egeus), Ami Metcalf (Snout), Jamie-Rose Monk (Snug), Felicity Montagu (Quince), Lennin Nelson-McClure (Mustardseed), Rachel Tolzman (Fairy), Jay Webb (Cobweb) and Kit Young (Lysander).

The production, which opens on 3 June, reunites the same creative team that produced Hytner's Julius Caesar last year. The show has design by Bunny Christie, costume by Christina Cunningham, lighting by Bruno Poet and sound by Paul Arditti and joining the team will be Grant Olding as composer.
