Two performances of Shakespeare’s fantasy comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream will take place in English in the garden of Prague Castle on July 29 and 30 as part of the annual Summer Shakespeare Festival (Letní Shakespearovské slavnosti).

A highlight this time is that actor Hammed Animashaun, who is in Prague to appear in the Amazon series The Wheel of Time, will co-direct the play along with Prague Shakespeare Company’s artistic director Guy Roberts.
