In this most magical of Shakespeare's comedies, a quartet of young lovers, some fleeing a forced marriage, some chasing unrequited love, escapes Athens. In the forest, they collide with the squabbling Queen and King of the fairies, Titania and Oberon, as well as Oberon's mischievous servant Puck and a pack of hapless craftsmen, the Mechanicals. In the magical woods, lovers change affections at the drop of a hat.
Guests are welcome to bring a folding chair, blanket, and picnic basket!
