Hugh Sullivan in A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream

1968 NR

Peter Hall directs this fine Royal Shakespeare Company adaptation of the Bard's most pixilated romantic comedy about a group of amorous adults -- under a fairy's spell -- that couple and uncouple at the slightest provocation. ("What fools these mortals be.") Stars Diana Rigg, Judi Dench, Ian Holm, Helen Mirren, Ian Richardson and David Warner. One of Shakespeare's most magical plays (and unusual in that it lacks a written source for the plot).
