A Midsummer Night's Midterm - 16 and 17 Dec
As four high school friends gather to cram for a midterm on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the play comes to life before their eyes... literally! The story unfolds before the teens, as Lysander and Demetrius compete for Hermia’s attention and Helena attempts to capture Demetrius’s attention. When the faeries and Bottom and his players show up, the students work even harder to understand this delightfully convoluted story. Their insightful comments on Shakespeare’s language, his characterization of women and men and even his relevance to today’s world add even more fun.
