A Midsummer Night's Dream

Shakespeare Like You've Never Experienced Before

SEPTEMBER 10 - OCTOBER 5, 2024

By William Shakespeare
Adapted for the stage and Directed by Jeremy Webb

Love, magic, and mistaken identities are set anew against Prohibition's shadowed veil, in this reimagined comedic tale.

Mischief and mayhem ensue when four young lovers—Hermia, Lysander, Helena, and Demetrius—flee to the forest, only for Puck the fairy to make both boys fall in love with the same girl. Meanwhile, Puck helps his master, Oberon, play a trick on the fairy queen, Titania, making her fall in love with the abrasive leader of an amateur theatre troupe, whom Puck has transformed into a donkey. Amidst the confusion, the troupe of hapless actors rehearse a play for the wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta. Misunderstandings and mistaken identities create amusing twists and chaos. In the end, Puck reverses the magic, the two couples reconcile and marry, and the fairies retreat back to the forest. 

Set against the seedy underbelly of the Prohibition, this production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is sexy, gritty, and dark.

An experience of fantastical delights, dost thou seek, where wonders unfold and dreams taketh flight.
