“Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream.”
More than one couple is “ill met by moonlight” in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays – one which has often been called “an almost perfect play”. While audiences may be familiar with the themes of star-crossed lovers, not all is as it seems. A Midsummer Night’s Dream transports audiences from the logical world of Athens into the forest, where fantastical adventures await. Follow Theseus, Hippolyta, Demetrius, Helena, Hermia, and Lysander into an enchanting place where the moon rules all, and more than a little magic can be found in the darkness.
