Shakespeare and Company Presents; Midsummer Night’s Dream
April 26, 2018 @ 11:00 am
Shakespeare and Company Present Othello & Midsummer Night’s Dream
Wednesday, April 25 | 11 AM*
Friday, April 27 | 10:30 AM* & 8 PM
In Othello, a man takes revenge on a friend by tearing apart the fabric of his life–love turns to jealousy; trust becomes doubt; friendships are shattered—an intricate construct of lies turns his life upside down, and ultimately makes him the instrument of the death of what he holds most precious.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Thursday, April 26 | 11 AM
Saturday, April 28 | 11 AM & 8 PM
Four young lovers risk everything by chasing each other into the woods… The King and Queen of the faeries are fighting, and all of Nature is suffering for it… A war between the Amazons and the Athenians has turned into a wedding… A hapless amateur theater group is putting on a play…
Out of these unlikely ingredients, William Shakespeare created A Midsummer Night’s Dream, quite possibly the most perfect comedy ever written. Mistaken identities abound, malicious (and not so malicious) tricks are played, love potions go bad, and a guy ends up with a donkey’s head instead of his own…
Midsummer is a blind-eyed break-neck-speed no-holds-barred tumble through the heart; it’s a play about how love wounds and forgiveness heals; about how no dream is too big.
All shows will be followed by Q&As with the cast.
*The morning performances on Wednesday, April 25th and Friday, April 27 will be followed by Actor/Audience Workshops.
Our location is central, with free parking and nearby public transportation.
