A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved and most produced plays in his repertoire. The play’s simple love-story and hilarious takes on love and life produces some of the most immortal lines in history like, “Lord, what fools these mortals be” and “The course of true love never did run smooth”.Our play is set in the late 60’s/ early 70’s, a time of Beatniks and Hippies and great music. The play follows teenage lovers Hermia, Lysander, Demetrius and Helena as they fall in and out of love, attempting to avoid the strict rules of parents and society. While in the woods, the lovers get entangled in a spat between the king and queen of the fairies, much to the amusement of their mischievous servant, Puck. Meanwhile, a group of actors, attempting to practice a play for the Duke’s wedding, also get mixed-up in the zaniness. A play full of tender moments and laughter, Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a play for everyone to enjoy.
