A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By William Shakespeare | Directed by Sheila Daniels
Two pairs of young Athenians escape the tyranny of rule and family to enter the earthy unpredictable netherworld of the forest. By twists and turns, the mystical inhabitants play havoc with the four as well as with an unsuspecting theatre troupe, turning everyone’s world upside down. Director Sheila Daniels returns to play with the dark shadows and golden glow of Shakespeare’s most popular comedy.
And just how is this edgy you ask? Directory Sheila Daniels challenges our traditional reading of Shakespeare’s play be casting the central pair of lovers as a same-sex, lesbian couple. Interesting… eh?
