A Midsummer Night's Dream

written by william shakespeare 
Directed by Sean O'Shea


Sport for Jove's much loved outdoor summer season returns this December and January to Bella Vista Farm and the Leura Everglades.

Love is love is love.”

On a moonlit night two young couples and a handful of aspiring actors take a journey into the woods. Their lives will never be the same again. For over four centuries, spellbound audiences have taken that journey with them, making A Midsummer Night’s Dream one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies.

Journey with us to a place where reality, fantasy, dream and nightmare collide. A place where social convention implodes to reveal what lies beneath us all; our funny, quaint and perplexing need to love and be loved.


Shakespeare seems to be reminding us that the underlying message of everything is love, that love is love in all its guises. The journey into the woods is as old and mythic as time itself. It is a journey of healing that allows us to dream, and ultimately dream leads us back to ourselves. It brings us home.


Come on the journey with us. This midsummer come and celebrate the healing power of love with us under the stars. We owe it to ourselves after all.
