Shakesqueer: The all LGBTQ cast put on A Midsummer Night's Dream

There is a new production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, unlike one you're likely to have seen.
 
Put on by the Arcola Queer Collective in Hackney, the show combines classic and modern text to explore love in today's LGBTQ community.
 
London Live went to meet the cast and find out more about what they're calling "Shakesqueer".

A special gala performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream is set to take place tonight at the Arcola Theatre in Dalston, to raise money for the collective.
