Review of The Young Vic production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Linked). A circus ring full of mud. No props at all. No music, except a choral introduction from the whole cast then Bottom’s unaccompanied songs, and the Singing fairy. Little dance. No fairy attendants. Modern dress. The only bit of costume was decorating Bottom. This was the Dream stripped to its bare bones, but it proved that the elements still work. Leo Bill below as Bottom.
