Event Details

New Swan Shakespeare Festival is back — with a live performance of A Midsummer Night’s Zoom.

This special live streaming production opens in a place called Zoomland before moving to the Forest of your Dreams.

A Midsummer Night’s Zoom is directed by Eli Simon and features New Swan actors from the 2018 production, as well as sparkling new New Swan talent.

This production has been re-envisioned for the medium of Zoom acting and live-streaming.

We are dividing the play into halves, with interactive discussions led by Professor Julia Lupton following each evening’s performance.


“How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.”
