The Midsummer Players stage an outdoor version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream every year. The actors are dreadful and audience members almost never attend more than once. Except for… the fey folk!
All of the fairies named in the play are obliged to attend every performance, due to a deal that they struck with a mischievous Master Shakespeare. In an attempt to break up the Players on the eve of their twentieth anniversary, Oberon and Puck hire a human agent of chaos to infiltrate the actors’ ranks and set them against one another by focusing on secret attractions and grudges that have been lying dormant up to now. Sparks will fly, and everyone will come to blows, but it’s all executed with a wink and a grin, and there will be more smiles than tears by the end. At least, that’s the plan…
This comedic fantasy is for lovers of Shakespeare, chaos and fairies everywhere.
