A radical, joyful, and raucous adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream that challenges the patriarchy in Shakespeare’s original play. Three groups- the lovers, the mechanicals, and the fairies—transform and reform social possibilities in the forest. A group of working-class actors (the mechanicals) prepare for the opportunity of a lifetime–a court performance. Hermia, Lysander, Helena, and Demetrius seek to fulfill their forbidden desires. The fairy king and queen vie for control of the natural world. When they return to court for the mechanicals’ performance, theatre becomes the catalyst for change.
