A Midsummer Night's Midterm
November 12 - 15, 2015
As four students study for their midterm exam about the famous play. A Midsummer Night's Dream is a love story and comedy that has been retold since the 1590s. While the fairies enchant humans to try to restore true love, the natural world order hangs in the balance. Without the blessing of Oberon and Titania, the kingdom of Athens may never find peace. Theseus and Hippolyta are a couple into hunting before their wedding feast, Hermia, Helena, Lysander, and Demetrius are young nobles trying to find a place to be together, and the players, or "bad actors" re-enact an ancient love tragedy to great comic effect as they attempt to entertain the nobility. Love is made the fool, and proven true, as the fairies and humans celebrate Midsummer by mending dreams.
