About this show

What better way to see Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream than on the lawn on a summer's day? A Midsummer Night's Dream has a complex plot that makes the merriment soar. It involves two sets of couples, whose romantic cross-purposes are complicated still further by their entrance into the play's fairyland woods where the King and Queen of the Fairies preside, and the impish folk character of Puck plies his trade. Another set of characters-Bottom, the weaver, and his bumptious band of rude mechanicals-stumble into the main doings when they go into the same enchanted woods to rehearse a play that is very loosely (and comically) based on the myth of Pyramus and Thisbe. This Shakespearean family-friendly comedy will be presented on the green, under a tent, next to The Playhouse.
