Coming from the heart of a writer whose fan base remains strong after 400 years, A Midsummer Night’s Dream celebrates love, youth and the beauty and mysterious power of nature. Traveling between exuberance and danger, innocence and transgression, waste land and wonderland, it’s a comedy about the yearning of human beings for restoration, both of nature and of themselves.
This production was originally planned for the Spring of 2020, but the worldwide pandemic prevented it from being staged. Two years later, everyone can have a better appreciation of the play’s deepest meanings. The coming of light, it seems to say, requires a plunge into darkness. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is about the return to life.
As the play’s young lovers flee the heavy hand of society for the freedom of the forest, we can acknowledge what we’ve all been through and celebrate, across time, the endless cycles of renewal and the special promise of this moment.
