Star-crossed lovers who love, reject love, lose love and find it again.


A weaver who's dreams of being an actor take a slight detour, as he and his misguided friends prepare to become actors. Oh...and a Fairy King and Queen, troublesome sprite and mystical servants. All in one wood, on one magical night. It's all here in one of Shakespeare's most comical and heart-warming plays, that teaches us that falling in love can make fools of us all.

After Dark discussion follows the Friday performance.
