Lysander’s Aunty or A Most Rageful Irreverent Comedy Concerning an Offstage Character from A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Ralph McCubbin Howell jumps from Athens to Aotearoa. With a cast of New Zealand’s finest comic talent, this is a wild ride of magic, mayhem and mutiny.
In William Shakespeare’s
 A Midsummer Night’s Dream, young lovers Lysander and Hermia defy the Duke by eloping to an aunt’s house in the woods. But just who is this law-snubbing, free-loving aunty? What’s she doing in the bush? And what happens when the law comes knocking at her door?

With quick, witty dialogue and a pacey plot, Lysander’s Aunty or A Most Rageful Irreverent Comedy Concerning an Offstage Character from A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a new, energetic, large-ensemble production led by award-winning Trick of the Light duo, director Hannah Smith and writer Ralph McCubbin Howell.

A co-production between Auckland Theatre Company, Trick of the Light, Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts, Auckland Arts Festival and Brilliant Adventures. Commissioned by The Court Theatre, by arrangement with Playmarket.

NZSL-interpreted performances feature an interpreter on stage to interpret the show for Deaf and hard-of-hearing patrons in the audience.
Auckland Theatre Company's accessibility programme is presented by Dentons Kensington Swan.
