TheatreUSF Presents Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Richard Beecham
Associate Director Alice Malin
A Duke and a Queen to be married; lovers spelled and lost in the woods; the King and Queen of the Fairies move against each other in a festive rivalry with a comic troupe of mechanicals caught in their web. What could be better than Shakespeare’s most loved romp? Set on the beach – the scene is updated but Shakespeare’s beautiful language is intact. Come and have fun with us in A Midsummer Night’s Dream!
