A Midsummer Night’s Dream

This specific production does not yet have a description, but the play itself does:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a classic and much loved text by William Shakespeare.
Written around the late 1500’s.
Like most Shakespearean texts, A Midsummer Night’s Dream stands the test of time; the narrative is almost timeless and it is still performed regularly to this day.

The story is about four Athenian “lovers” who all all in love with one another; Hermia and Lysander are in love but Hermia’s farther, Egeus, wants her to marry Demetrius who also loves her. Left behins poor Helena, who has a deep and unrequited love for Demetrius. As Hermia and Lysander run away to a nearby forest together on the eve of a big Athenian wedding between Theseus and Hippolyta. Demetrius follows the object of his affection, as does Helena.

Chaos ensues as the escaped lovers are set upon by magical forces dwelling in the woods. As a result of a magic potion, the lovers fall for different women.

Also effected by the mischevious woodland spirits are “the Mechanicals”, labour workers from Athens who are practicing a play for the royal Athenian wedding.

Hilarity, sexuality and desire are key themes in this whimsical text by Shakespeare.
