A Midsummer Night's Dream


A Midsummer Night's Dream


“The course of true love never did run smooth…”

 A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a first-rate entree to the Bard.

An enchanted wood, and magic love spells provide the ingredients for one of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedies.

When four young lovers, fleeing Athenian law and their own lopsided rivalries, take to the forest of Athens, their lives become entangled in a feud between the King and the gossamer-winged Queen of the Fairies.

The result is a marvelous mix-up of desire and enchantment, merriment and farce, all touched by Shakespeare’s inimitable vision of the enthralling relationship between art and life, dreams and the waking world.


WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (1564-1616) was an English playwright poet, and actor, regarded as the world's pre-eminent dramatist, and the greatest writer in the English language. Author of such timeless works as Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Hamlet and King Lear, he is often called the “Bard of Avon,” England's national poet.
