Food of Love and Third Rail Projects have announced Midsummer: A Banquet, a new production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream from the producers of Shake & Bake: Love's Labour's Lost and the creators of Then She Fell. Performances will begin at Café Fae in Union Square on July 15, with an opening night set for July 24, and a run through September 8.

Midsummer: A Banquet is described as follows: "In what is arguably Shakespeare's best comedy, mischief reigns in the woods. From the royal rehearsal dinner for Theseus and Hippolyta to their final wedding feast itself, Midsummer: A Banquet follows four confused lovers and a band of actors as they navigate love, magic, donkey heads, and a fairy kingdom over the course of one mirthful summer evening."

Caroline Amos (Romeo & Juliet), Cassie Gilling (Dancing at Lughnasa), Joshua Gonzales (The Women From Space), Charles Osborne (Shake & Bake: Love's Labour's Lost), Adrienne Paquin (The Comedy of Errors), Brendan Sokler (Taylor Mac's Decades Project), Victoria Rae Sook (Shake & Bake: Love's Labour's Lost), Lauren Walker (Charm), and Ryan Wuestewald (Ghost Light) will star.

Zach Morris will direct, with a menu by Emilie Baltz. The creative team will include Jason Simms (set design), Tyler M. Holland (costume design), Deborah Constantine (lighting design), and Sean Hagerty (original music and sound design).
