Dreams meet reality in an enchanting new play inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

By Toby Hulse

Sophie’s world is changing, so she reaches out to her parents, Demetrius and Helena. Through her stories maybe she can help them recapture the moment when they were young and in love? Can they go back to the beginning and let the enchanted forest cast its spell again?

Full of twist and turns, To Dream Again tells the poignant story of a girl coming to terms with her parents’ separation. Acclaimed children’s writer Toby Hulse mixes comedy and drama, as real life meets the playful, magical world of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
