A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1595/96. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.
Bring a blanket and enjoy an outdoor performance of a beloved classic. Follow the misadventures of four young lovers, a group of aspiring actors, and a team of mischievous fairies as they enter the woods on a summer night. Presented in partnership with the SF Shakespeare Festival.
