The PLT brings to the stage one of Shakespeare's most popular plays, A Midsummer Night's Dream. It portrays the adventures of four young Athenian lovers, a group of amateur actors and their interactions with the Duke and Duchess of Athens, and the fairies that inhabit a moonlit forest. A Midsummer Night’s Dream was written in 1595 or 1596. Some experts believe it was written to have its first performance in the gardens of a great country estate for the celebrations for an aristocratic wedding. As the fictional newlyweds King Theseus and Queen Hippolyta, Lysander and Hermia, and Demetrius and Helena watched Bottom and his friends performing “Pyramus and Thisbe,” a real-life bride and groom were in turn watching them! Shakespeare’s beloved comedy contains a play within a play and a world within a world, inviting audiences to enter a world of magic and fantasy and leave the theatre pondering, "was it all a dream?"

“Festival of love” –Jennifer Kramer, Philadelphia Shakespeare
“Beautiful, powerful, magical, dangerous” – Roseanne Wells, Theatre for a New Audience
