A Midsummer Night’s Dream

July 17 - 27th, 2014

Babcock Theatre

Hugh Hanson

On a midsummer night in an enchanted forest where fairies and nymphs make merry and mischief beckons, uncertain love is in the air. A quartet of mismatched lovers and an inept troupe of amateur actors cross paths with the feuding King and Queen of the Fairies in the wondrous wood, resulting in a night of moonlit mirth. Love triumphs at dawn, but not before the trickster Puck has had his way with all. Shakespeare’s brilliant comedy of confusion and desire explores the inexplicable magic of falling in love, and the wonder of waking from the sweetest of dreams.
