A Midsummer Night's Dream
Matthew Dunster’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre production of the Dream gave the play a twist of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.
While the lovers sniped and thumped one another, Oliver’s Puck was a hoodied-BMXer, an image with eerie reminiscence of the London Riots the previous summer. Beneath the hood, however, Oliver was every inch the mythical mischief.

“Matthew Dunster’s consistently inventive production”Fiona Mountford
The Evening Standard
“Puck as a sinister hoodie on a bicycle also, plausibly, expands his naughtiness into something more alarming”
“Once again this exceptional space has been transformed into a world you’d never imagined”Serena Davies
