Marblehead Little Theatre Presents A Midsummer Night's Dream
One of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies finishes off the summer season at Marblehead Little Theatre. No one will be able to resist the magic and mayhem of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
In Athens lately, the weather has been apocalyptic. . .even as Theseus, the Duke, prepares for his nuptial celebration with Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. A group of amateur actors, hoping to avoid the prying eyes of potential audience members, venture into a nearby forest to rehearse. Four lovers, fleeing the tyranny of adults, escape there as well. But in the forest also dwell the battling King and Queen of the fairies and their sprites, who hold sway over everyone else's story. Here, a world is created from the ground up only to disappear in the blink of an eye. As it shifts and transforms, the maze traversing the "real" and "dream" worlds disorients inhabitants and visitors alike.
Director Christopher Martel's unique vision will surprise and amaze all who join the adventure. In the end we will all be awakened from the night's dreaming and wonder how much of it was real. How much of this really happened?
