The course of true love never did run smooth’

Desperate lovers, squabbling supernaturals and a hapless troupe of amateur actors get tangled in this joyous tale of enchantment and transformation.

Full of magic and mayhem, this is Shakespeare’s most celebrated comedy, reimagined by Artistic Director, Robert Hastie with music from co-creator of Everybody's Talking About Jamie Dan Gillespie Sells, in a fresh production brimming with musicality.
What to expect from a Dementia Friendly performance
Our Dementia Friendly performances are highlighted with the code DF when you are looking in the brochure or online.
We want to ensure that the experience of vising Sheffield Theatres is truly enjoyable and supportive. For a Dementia Friendly performance, we consult with people living with Dementia and the people who support them, to create the best possible environment to enjoy the show.
The show itself is adapted (where necessary) in terms of lighting, sound and occasionally stage action. The details of a specific production can be discussed when you make your booking. We offer flexibility when booking seats to allow a little more space if needed and all of our Box Office team are trained Dementia Friends.
We also offer pre-show singing sessions to help prepare people for the show!
On the day, our fully trained staff team and volunteers are on hand to guide you and provide additional support if needed. In the auditorium, there is a relaxed attitude to movement and audience responses. An accessible quiet room outside the auditorium is also available for anyone who wants to take some time away from the show.
For more information, please contact the Box Office on 0114 249 6000.
