Midsummer Nights Dream Poster_FINALA Midsummer Night's Dream

One of Shakespeare's most popular comedies, A Midsummer Night's Dream depicts the mis-adventures of two pairs of lovers, the feuding King and Queen of the Fairies, and an inept troupe of amateur actors. Our production combines a post-modern, steam-punk costume design with innovative staging devices to tell this classic tale in a new way.


By William Shakespeare
