The course of true love never did run smooth…

A fairy king, his queen and their servants cause chaos and confusion between four young people in Ancient Greece… Listen on, through magic and mischief, to discover the hilarious story at the heart of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays.

As well as the story, this audiobook contains information about the background to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, its major themes, language, and Shakespeare’s life during the time he was writing the play. Fairies and fairy folklore in 16th century England are also examined, to give the context in which the play was written.

The Short, Sharp Shakespeare series consists of six books that retell Shakespeare’s most famous plays in modern English. Fun sound effects and atmospheric music accompany each narration, making them a great introduction to “the Bard” for children.
