Take a trip into the magical forest of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, where identities are mistaken, love blossoms, and magic reigns. A joyful and enormously entertaining blend of romance, slapstick, and pathos, Shakespeare’s effervescent comic fantasy remains perennially popular for its vivid characters, sparkling wit, and famed comic setpieces.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is brought to life by Actors From The London Stage, a dynamic five-actor company that tours the United States twice annually. With each actor portraying multiple roles, A Midsummer Night’s Dream promises to be a delightful night of theatrical entertainment.

On the eve of the marriage between Duke Theseus of Athens and the Amazon queen Hippolyta, a quartet of lovers stumble into a magical forest overseen by the fairy king Oberon and his queen, Titania. As the lovers fall out of and back into love, the fairies gleefully manipulate their escapades, all while a bumbling theatrical troupe, led by the indefatigable Nick Bottom, prepares for an all-important performance before the Duke and his new queen.
