This summer, join Iris at its annual season of outdoor theatre at the beautiful 17th century St Paul’s Church in the heart of Covent Garden. Escape to the forest, where fairies, lovers and a travelling band of actors await magical wonderment in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and where Robin Hood and her merry men plot to take on the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham for one final showdown.

Now in its 12th year, Iris’ summer season has become a critically-acclaimed, award-winning part of the theatrical calendar, welcoming thousands of people to the incomparable Actors’ Church right in the middle of the West End, just steps away from centuries of theatrical history. Taking place across the grounds of the church as well as inside Inigo Jones’s masterpiece, the summer shows are an escape from the hustle and bustle, and an experience like no other.

The season complements Iris’ year-round work as a charity and hub for emerging and mid-career artists alike, supporting creatives with transformational opportunities as they take their first or next steps into their profession.
