HÀ NỘI — Britain's TNT Theatre is bringing the bard to stages in the big cities from May 21- 24. 

While touring Asia, the theatre will present A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare in Hà Nội, Đà Nẵng and HCM City. 

A Midsummer Night's Dream is Shakespeare's most popular comedy, following the fortunes of a quartet of lovers who are lured into the forest by fairies who trick them with a magic potion that forces them to fall in love with the first person they see.

This hilarious comedy explores the madness of love and laughs at human folly and contains some of the finest poetry that Shakespeare ever wrote, slapstick comedy, touching love scenes and theatrical magic.

TNT’s production, which delivers Shakespeare in an easy to understand format, even for those who have English as a second language, has been an extraordinary global success, performing hundreds of times across the world.

The production is directed by Paul Stebbings and performed by five artists including Samantha Jean Hazel, Samuel Michale Beresford, Darryl Ryan Marc, Aimee Leigh and Martha Caidan. 

TNT Theatre was founded in the 1980's and has performed at many theatres and venues around the world such as the Royal National Theatre London; the National Theatre of Scotland; Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica; National Centre for Performing Arts Beijing; Tokyo Metropolitan arts space and Akademie der Kunst Berlin.

The theatre group performed in Việt Nam for the first time in 2009 and last year put on performances of Romeo & Juliet in Đà Nẵng, Hà Nội and HCM City. 

TNT Theatre will have two shows at 11am and 8pm at Hà Nội Opera House on May 21 and at HCM City Municipal Theatre on May 23. In Đà Nẵng, the show will take place at 8pm on May 24 at Nguyễn Hiển Dĩnh Theatre. — VNS
