A Midsummer Night's Dream - Live Q&A with Cast & Crew
Friday, August 28 at 9:30 p.m. • Shakespeare at Notre Dame YouTube Channel

Join us for a LIVE Q&A featuring members of the cast and crew of our exclusive benefit reading of Jeff Whitty's adaptation of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, in collaboration with Play On Shakespeare!

Originally commissioned by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Midsummer was directed by Lavina Jadhwani as the culmination of NDSF's summer of online performances, classes, and panel discussions.

Whitty, whose text was the basis of the reading, is an Academy Award-nominated and Tony Award-winning playwright (Avenue Q), screenwriter, and actor. 

The Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival exists to enrich on-campus and surrounding communities and in the summer of 2020 celebrated the award of two prominent grants: the Play On Shakespeare! reading and another from the National Endowment for the Arts Shakespeare in American Communities: Juvenile Justice.
