A Midsummer Night’s Dream at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 3–26 June 2021 - Book now

This summer HOME will host Filter Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a brand-new production of Alice in Wonderland at their new outdoor cultural venue, Homeground.

The huge new temporary outdoor venue – rumoured to be three times the size of Albert Square – will host theatre, food and drink, music, cabaret and comedy. Scheduled to open this May, the venue will have two stages as well as pop-up food and drink – providing a brilliant summer destination for those looking for Covid-safe cultural fun as lockdown eases.

Homeground is scheduled to open on Friday 28 May 2021 and will be located near HOME’s existing building on First Street.

A reworked and remixed version of the Shakespearean classic.

First theatre show happening at the new outdoor venue is Filter Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. A reworked and remixed version of the Shakespearean classic, the production first premiered at Latitude Festival and was last seen on tour in 2018. Promising to be a riotous take on the well-loved Shakespearean comedy, watch the young lovers and bickering fairies cross paths in this inventive and fresh adaptation. Welcoming and relaxed, the show features an original musical score from members of The London Snorkeling Team and has been described as ‘anarchic fun’ by audiences.

Recommended for ages 12 and over, be sure to book your tickets early for this exciting and exhilarating version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
