“The course of true love never did run smooth.” ― William Shakespeare
Four lovers lost in the woods and a group of rude mechanicals who have set out to put on a play become entangled in a dream world. The Fairy Kingdom is at odds, spells are cast and the devilish sprite Puck weaves his mischief amongst the mortals, but is all fair in love and war? This fast-paced romp promises to be an unforgettable midsummer adventure for the whole family. Presented by Shakespeare & Company’s Northeast Regional Education Tour. Generously sponsored by Rhea and Ken Werner.
