A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
By William Shakespeare
Directed by David Ian Rabey
This abridged adaptation locates Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a contemporary setting, of a patriarchal, homophobic society, but aims to raise the spirits!
The humans do not know what awaits them in the forest as they try to find freedom, among mischievous forces, which prove capable of altering their experiences and perspectives delightfully and/or shockingly.
The hope for liberation involves some negotiation of dangers and unpredictability, when authoritarian order meets festive anarchic release.
Playing time: approximately two hours, twenty minutes; including a ten minute interval.
