National Theatre Live continues its 10th anniversay season this month with a live broadcast of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Sierra Cinemas.

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations … with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) leads the cast as Titania. In this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Nicholas Hytner, the Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.

In November, NT Live presents Hansard, a witty and devastating portrait of the governing class, directed by Simon Godwin and starring two-time Olivier Award winners, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen).

Finally, come out in December for Present Laughter, Noël Coward’s provocative comedy starring Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock). Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.

Patrons can view all National Theatre Live events and purchase tickets at sierratheaters.com. Tickets may also be purchased at the Sierra Cinemas Box Office. Sierra Cinemas is located at 840-C East Main Street at Hughes Road in Grass Valley.
