The Lord Chamberlain’s Men invite you to join them this summer for Shakespeare’s enchanting comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Lovers at war flee to an enchanted forest alive with meddling fairies and sprites. Hoping for their true loves’ course to be set straight, instead they become further entangled and confused as they are caught in the cross fire of a fairy king and queen at odds. Meanwhile a bumbling group of artisans prepare a play to be presented as part of the Duke’s wedding celebration.
"Lord, what fools these mortals be!"
This supernatural comedy of mischievous fairies, confused lovers and rude mechanicals is an intoxicating tale of clarity found from chaos as tangled love gives way to happily ever afters.
"The course of true love never did run smooth."
