A Midsummer Night's Dream, on the other hand, is considered to be one of Shakespeare's funniest and most delightful comedies, telling the story of criss-crossed love and feuding fairies. The play includes the adventures of 4 young Athenian lovers and a group of 6 amateur actors controlled by the fairies who inhabit the forest.

Shakespeare's Rose Theater, which was inspired by the famous London Rose Playhouse, first made its appearance in the city of York last year. The theater hosted productions of William Shakespeare's popular plays, set in the time that they were written. 

After gaining popularity and critical acclaim in its debut year, the theater is set to go on a second season in York, as well as a second theater in Blehnheim Palace in Oxford.
