Producing Shakespeare, a first for The White Theatre, is an invitation to dream of faeries, queens, and kings, love’s delight and…donkeys? The mischievous Puck finds himself tangled in a web of love between Demetrius, Lysander, and Hermia and twists reality with a flower that makes people fall in love with the first thing they see upon waking. The magic of love, drugs, and midnight madness create this fantastically fun Shakespearean classic, A Midsummer Night's Dream.
