“I have had a most rare vision. I had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.” – Act 4, Scene 1
Four brawling lovers caught unawares in a dispute of increasingly magical proportions; a fairy king and queen engaged in a war of wills; a crew of amateur actors determined to give it their all; and one roguish sprite with orders to intervene…What could possibly go wrong?
Deep in a wondrous forest, it’s a wild night for lunatics and lovers as we dive into Shakespeare’s unforgettable vision of ludicrous longing, lively language, and lasting love. Surrender to the enchanting world of the Bard’s most beguiling comedy in ASF’s idyllic Shakespeare Garden.
ASF’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is part of Shakespeare in American Communities, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
