The Independent Recommends: Theatre

Midsummer Night's Dream - artistic director John Retallack's parting shot - has been garnering praise on tour over the past few weeks. Fast (just two hours, without an interval), fastidiously designed, and as fresh as a love-in- idleness flower, it boasts sprightly performances, particularly from newcomer Victoria Woodward as Titania.

Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield (01484 430528) 7.30pm
