A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare
In Shakespeare’s much-loved bitter-sweet comedy,
Theseus, Duke of Athens, is about to marry Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons. Four young star-crossed Athenian lovers fall in and out of love, aided (or hindered) by the mischievous sprite Puck. Six unlikely amateur actors (the mechanicals) prepare to entertain Theseus’s wedding party, only to get caught up in fairy mayhem along the way. This is arguably Shakespeare’s most popular play, and was last seen on our stage in 1996.
Director: Jan Wilson, whose recent production for MHDS was the inaugural production in our new studio theatre – An Evening with the Bard.
