A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Trailer for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

What Happens In the Forest, Stays in the forest

Directed by Brian Isaac Phillips

CSC inaugurates its brand new theater with one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Lysander loves Hermia. Hermia loves Lysander. Demetrius loves Hermia. Helena loves Demetrius. No one loves Helena (poor Helena). This byzantine love quadrangle turns even more ludicrous when, lost in the woods on a midsummer’s eve, the love-struck quartet finds themselves at the mercy of a band of mischievous fairies armed with a potent love potion. Throw a scorned queen, a donkey’s head, and a troupe of enthusiastically inept actors into the fray, and before you know it you’ll be howling “Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
