Fall Theatre Arts Play Production
Midsummer Night’s Dream
Originally written by William Shakespeare
Directed by: Jane McFarlane
Double cast – ‘Canker’ and ‘Blossom’
Our fall 2018 production of the classic Shakespeare play, a comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1595/96, 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.
