The Stanford Shakespeare Company Presents: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Elliott Program Center

Feb. 21 - 8pm

Feb. 23 - 2pm and 8pm

On the eve of a great celebration for the wedding of Theseus, renowned Duke of Athens, and the Amazonian queen Hippolyta, the King and Queen of fairyland meet in the woods just outside the city. Oberon and Titania are quarrelling ceaselessly, and their spat has affected the entire natural world around them.

On that very same night, two unsuspecting groups of young Athenians leave the safety of the city behind and venture into the strange and wonderful forest that lies outside. Four young lovers, hoping to escape the strict laws of Athens or to return home with newfound love, and a gang of common artisans, eagerly rehearsing their original new play, quickly become caught up in a magical feud that turns every relationship and well-made plan on its head.

In just one chaotic night, one rebellious fairy leads these Athenians on a magical and whimsical adventure, blurring the lines of power, romance, and reality itself to create hilarious new situations in Shakespeare’s silliest and most iconic comedy!
