Cast announced for Joe Hill-Gibbins’ A Midsummer Night's Dream - Young Vic
Cast announced for new production.
Initial casting has been announced for the Young Vic's upcoming production of A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins which runs from 16 February to 1 April 2017, with an official opening on 23 February 2017.
Michael Gould stars as Oberon alongside Anastasia Hille as Titania, Leo Bill as Bottom, John Dagleish as Lysander, Jemima Rooper as Hermia, Oliver Alvin-Wilson as Demetrius, Anna Madeley as Helena and Matthew Steer as Peter Quince. Further casting is still to be announced.
"In a world of grotesque transformations and sexual provocation, repressed conflicts between lovers and their parents are released. Manipulation leads to complications and desire becomes dangerous. Heaving with the energy of a wild house party, Hill-Gibbins’ production dives into the subconscious of Shakespeare’s masterpiece."
The production features design and lighting by Johannes Schütz, costumes by Michaela Barth, sound by Paul Arditti, movement by Jenny Ogilvie and dramaturgy by Zoë Svendsen.
Director Joe Hill-Gibbins returns to the Young Vic following Measure for Measure, The Changeling, The Glass Menagerie, The Beauty Queen of Leenane and A Respectable Wedding.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
