Danger penetrates A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's enduring story of young love. As worlds real and unreal merge, romance struggles to survive and unlikely unions are forged.
Featuring the Open Air Theatre's celebrated fusion of original music, movement and unique setting, this magical, comedic and seductive tale is set to be one of the theatrical highlights of the year.
You might have studied the oft-cited Shakespeare play at school. Maybe you'll even be able be able to recall some of the story: Hermia is in love with Lysander, but is being forced by her father to marry Demetrius, with whom Helena is in love.
Then everything's thrown for a loop when some meddling fairies cast a love spell on both men, redirecting their affections from Hermia to Helena. Can the spell be broken, and true love conquer all?
