A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Shakespeare’s comedy about star-crossed lovers, incompetent actors and the magical fairies who create havoc for them all one night as they wander through a Japanese garden.

Hermia, Demetrius, Lysander and Helena are mixed up in a love quadrangle. Things get even more tangled as they venture into a Japanese garden one night, where fairy king Oberon is having his own troubles with his queen, Titania. Oberon sends his servant Puck to get a magical flower that produces a love potion, and mayhem and madness follow as the potion causes several characters to fall in love with the wrong person.

Add in the wedding of Duke Theseus and Hippolyta, and it’s one wild journey into discovering what real love is all about.
