A Midsummer Night's Dream

by William Shakespeare

The Bard's most iconic comedy

Midsummerprofpicbig_update_2
William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of the most popular plays in the history of the performing arts, has delighted, confounded, titillated, and transported audiences since its original Elizabethan staging. A whimsical romp through the woods? A freewheeling celebration of randomness over reason? A psychosexual plunge into the twisty realms of desire and identity? Or a bit of all three?

The Yale Dramatic Association’s giddy interpretation of this world classic promises a Midsummer like you’ve never seen it before, as bracing and contradictory as the landscape of your own dreams. Grand and intimate, hilarious and heartbreaking, wise and utterly absurd, this production reunites you with your favorite bands of dreamers: the rude mechanicals, hastily rehearsing their epic new play; the four lovers, primed for a quarrel that would trump the wildest of high school showdowns; and Oberon and Titania, eager to take their fairy grudges a little too far. Don’t miss this spirited pageant of the things we only dare imagine once we’re deep asleep.

February 19th-22nd in the Yale University Theater!

NOTE: This production uses strobe and hazer effects.
