Boy loves Girl. Girl is engaged to another. Boy meets Girl’s friend. Girl’s friend has the hots for Boy’s friend, who is engaged to Girl. Everyone runs away into a fairy-infested wood. Antics with an ass ensue.
So you think you know this story?
Come frolic in the woods with some humans who are taking themselves way too seriously!
Mission Theatre Company’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream will sweep you off your feet! From the opening rumbles of war to the show’s not-quite-so “happily-ever-after” ending you’ll be surprised and delighted as this ageless story is told afresh.
Mission’s highly physical, energetic production goes back to the text of Shakespeare and revels in the language at play. We open with a war between the Athenians and the Amazons, and from there our characters are cast into fairy hands as they wander through the confusing world of the woods. Midsummer is a breathtaking tale that will have you thrilled to know what happens next, even if you think you already know. Join us at the theatre and experience this ancient story the way it was meant to be told!
