Now in its ninth year, the Mobile Unit's free tour brings Shakespeare to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts and visits correctional facilities, homeless shelters, social service organizations, and other community venues. The Public's sit-down engagement of A Midsummer Night's Dream runs through November 17.
