If complicated love stories are your thing, then Amici Touring Theatre’s forthcoming production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream should definitely appeal.

Lysander loves Hermia; Hermia loves Lysander; Helena loves Demetrius, who used to love Helena but now loves Hermia.

Hermia’s father wants his daughter to marry Demetrius, so Hermia and Lysander escape to the forest, followed by Demetrius and Helena.

In the forest all is not as it seems. Oberon and Titania, King and Queen of the Fairies, are unable to agree about a boy Titania has adopted. As love potions are sprinkled liberally, not always landing as intended, confusion abounds.

William Shakespeare’s delightful and ever popular comedy will be performed at a number of venues next week.

On Thursday, May 26 at 7.30pm it will be in the Festival Hall at Market Rasen; Friday, May 27 at 7.30pm in The Broadbent Theatre, Wickenby; Saturday, May 28 at 1pm in The Heneage Arms, Hainton and at 7.30pm in Osgodby Village Hall; Sunday, May 29 at 1pm in The Collection at Lincoln.

Tickets cost £9 and £8 and can be booked on 01673 843575, except for the Broadbent performance which can be booked at www.broadbenttheatre.org or 01673 885500
