A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream (1973) was a theatre production by The National Theatre, based on the play by William Shakespeare. Because of foundation work beneath The National Theatre, the production was performed at Chat Noir.

Edith Roger directed it.

Svein Sturla Hungnes played the role of Puck, plus Philostrate.

Lubos Hruza was responsible for the stage design.

A Midsummer Night's Dream was transferred from Chat Noir to The National Theatre's main stage the autumn of 1973.
