The internationally renowned young Georgian theatre director, David Doiashvili, brings to the stage the comedy entitled “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, which is one of the most famous and most played works of William Shakespeare, the master of theatre, who was born 450 years ago.

The director said in connection with the performance in Gyula: “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is often regarded as an easy and cheerful fairy tale, oversimplifying the deeper, dramatic reading of the play. The humour and cheeriness play of course an important role in the performance, but they can only emerge if the powerful drama of the continuously changing human feelings and relationships is also present. The show directed by myself covers the special relationship between dreams and reality, in which the characters get into an intricate emotional labyrinth. As it often occurs in life – love, which is the strongest human feeling, may stir up our life so much that we cannot even make a difference between the dreams powered by our desires and the reality. It can also happen that the intensive feelings experienced in our dreams seem more realistic than the reality of the daily life that we are used to and often consider as a role. So the characters of A Midsummer Night’s Dream undergo a strange initiation somewhere on the border between dreams and reality.
