A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Stephen Wisker
Center for the Arts Drama Theatre


A Midsummer Night’s Dream recounts the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors and their interactions with woodland fairies, a duke and a duchess. Taking place in a mythical Athens and an enchanted forest, there is a handsome fairy king, a misguided parent, star-crossed lovers, a weaver who’s transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites and elves. William Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, and no wonder – it’s about the world’s most popular pastime, falling in love. But as Puck knows, falling in love can make fools of us all.
