When William Shakespeare wrote A Midsummer Night's Dream, he was obviously in a good mood. The bard's famed comedy is lively, upbeat and incredibly funny as it follows four young lovers, a group of actors and the meddling of forest fairies. Understandably, it ranks among his most popular works — and his most-performed.

Still, even if you've seen this play hit the stage or screen many times before, you haven't experienced it quite like this new version. Brisbane Immersive Ensemble's The Midsummer Carnival lives up the troupe's name, immersing the audience in the thick of the action.

'Immersive' is a term that can get overused, but this group turned a mystery board game into Cluedo: The Interactive Gameso they don't use the word lightly.

Get caught up in the carnival, the intertwined stories and the gypsy jazz at Brisbane Powerhouse from Friday, January 24–Saturday, February 8, with shows running at 6.30pm and 8.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 6.30pm on Sundays.
