A Midsummer Night's Dream
by William Shakespeare
directed by Hatem Adell
A Midsummer Night's Dream is Shakespeare's "sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll" play. Two young couples run away into the woods of Athens and encounter the fairy kingdom. Wacky, magical, mischief and love triangles abound in this canonical work. This site-specific, outdoor production will focus on early modern practices and take place in the days surrounding the summer solstice 2018.
