A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream (1996) was a theatre production by The Norwegian Touring Theatre, based on the play by William Shakespeare. The production toured sports halls the autumn of 1996, like the same theatre did with the same play the winter of 1976. The opening took place September 28 in Flekkefjord.

Svein Sturla Hungnes directed it.

Ketil Gudim played the role of Puck/Philostrat.

Gustav Adolf Hegh played the role of Francis Flute/Thisbe, as he had done the last time The Norwegian Touring Theatre performed the play, in 1976, and in 1963, in the summer theatre in Frognerparken.

A Midsummer Night's Dream was performed a few times in Oslo the winter of 1997.
