Jermyn Street Theathre is premiering Ibsen's first publicly performed play, St John's night.The play runs from Tuesday 10th July - Saturday 4th August and is directed by Anthony Biggs.

Henrik Ibsen's first publicly preformed play commissioned in 1851 by the eccentric violinist Ole Bull for the newly-established National Theatre in Bergen, is an enchanting tale of mischievous goblins, mismatched lovers and secret inheritances, loosely based on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Exploring themes of cultural inheritance, nationalism and the supernatural, St John's Night is a riotous and satirical comedy from a writer often associated with Nordic gloom.
