A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2015)

Friday, Feb 20, 2015 - Sunday, Mar 8, 2015 at Clarence Brown Theatre Mainstage

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

by William Shakespeare

Directed by John Sipes

“Shakespeare’s most enchanting comedy.”   ~ The New York Times

Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia. When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies. In Shakespeare’s family-friendly comedy, anything is possible when young lovers – human and fairy royalty – and an amateur theater troupe reel through romance and spell craft in a moonlit Athenian forest.
