A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Event, Garden City Event, Performing Arts Series, Theatre


Written by William Shakespeare
Direction by Brian Rose

Featuring the students of the Department of Theatre.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream may be Shakespeare’s most popular play, but it isn’t what it seems: this comedy of love and power asks more questions about love than it answers. When four desperate lovers flee into the woods, they encounter Oberon, King of the Shee, a supernatural being of moon-stopping power, and Puck, his insane associate, who switch around the lovers ‘undying’ loves with a single flower. Meanwhile, elsewhere in the woods, a crew of inept but well-meaning amateur actors also encounter Puck, leaving one of them with a donkey’s head and the object of the passionate, magic-induced love of Oberon’s powerful queen, Titania. Mix-ups, madness and revenge combine to create a comedy of chaos, blended with some of the Bard’s most wonderful lines and characters. It all works out well…but barely.
