Brief Synopsis: When a young woman flees Athens in order to be with the one she loves, they both get lost in the woods. A group of rough and rugged tradespeople leave the city to rehearse a play in the forest. Little do they know that there is trouble in the fairy world. The Fairy King and Queen are fighting and the balance of nature has been thrown off. The lovers fall in and out of love with each other in an instant, a tradesman is turned into a donkey and the Fairy Queen herself is put under a spell by her angry husband Oberon.
A magical and hilarious exploration of the nature of true love, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s best and most performed comedies!
