Mismatched lovers Hermia, Lysander, Demetrius and Helena flee to the forest outside Athens, but they run into a supernatural squabble that will alter their destinies forever. Will mischievous Puck create harmony or cacophony within the forest? Will Bottom and his Mechanicals put on a successful show for the Duke? Love, magic and wonder fill the air as dreams blend with reality in this must-see Shakespeare classic.
STC will also hold Family Week, a programming series of kid-friendly events in conjunction with the production, from December 11-16, 2012 in Sidney Harman Hall. STC created Family Week to encourage younger audiences to experience Shakespeare, in the belief that his words speak to all ages.
