Synopsis

 

The course of true love never did run smoothly, but who expected fairies and magic flowers?

 

On a midsummer’s night, a quartet of mismatched lovers and a band of inept actors wander into an enchanted forest where they find themselves embroiled in a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies. Romance, confusion, and desire all unite as our characters experience the inexplicable magic of love and the wonder of waking dreams. Some of Shakespeare’s most dazzling, dramatic poetry is found in this glittering and inventive comedic masterpiece, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.
