A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM By William Shakespeare, Directed by Philip Akin

"And to that place the sharp Athenian law cannot pursue us!"
In Athens, love is restricted by unfeeling men and by the harsh edicts of the law. But beyond the walls, the wild woods beckon to the lovers who seek to break feee. Freedom has its own dangers, though, for in the forest are spirits of another sort. In the unchained, shifting world of the Fairy King and Queen, true love can die, clowns can become monsters, friends can become enemies, and cues can be misunderstood. In Shakespeare's fantasy of escape, we learn how a night in the forest can transform the city forever.
