Synopsis

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare’s funniest, shortest, and most heartwarming romantic comedy. A group of four young friends are pulled this way and that by a jealous father and a quarreling king and queen. Hermia flees with her boyfriend into the woods, and is chased by her best friend, Helena, and Demetrius (the guy she told you not to worry about). As night falls, these four kids are discovered by a group of mischievous fairies, and a troupe of silly Essential Workers gets caught up in the brouhaha. All of them run around, get very confused, fall under magic spells, and then every one finds their true love. This gender-bending, all ages inaugural company is exploring love and friendship and family in this must-see, laugh-a-minute picnic party of a show!
