Set against a classical Athenian backdrop, A Midsummer Night's Dream deals with the universal theme of love, and its attendant complications: passion, lust, frustration, depression, confusion, and, of course, marriage. The plot focuses on the trials and experiences of two sets of lovers, the Fairy King and Queen and their servants, and a group of rude mechanicals attempting to stage a production of "Pyramus and Thisbe" for the wedding of the Duke of Athens. At the heart of the story is the Fairy King's servant, the impish Puck, whose magic creates an endless supply of mirth, mistaken identity,
and inappropriate, if not absolutely ludicrous passions.
This all British cast is not to be missed.
Aquila's Theatre has been hailed as "a classically trained, modernly hip troupe"
