Play Synopsis: Through an LGBT reimagining of William Shakespeare’s classic comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the story of a young lesbian couple forced to elope from Athens to escape their parents homophobic rule. They are quickly followed by a young male suitor, and his ex-boyfriend. In the forest, the King and Queen of Fairies are having their own lovers’ spat. The foursome is unsuspectingly caught in the middle, as magical potions delivered by the quicksilver spirit Puck further complicate and confuse the paths of love. When a hapless troupe of amateur actors rehearsing for the upcoming nuptials stumbles onto the scene, the mischief and confusion only multiplies… the course of true love never did run smooth.
