A Midsummer Night’s Dream
by William Shakespeare
directed by Tyne Rafaeli
May 22-Jun 16
Four lovers escape into the woods and find themselves entangled in a world turned upside-down. When it comes to love, what’s fantasy and what’s reality? Tricks abound and wires cross as we all seek escape from (or surrender to) the clutches of love.
