Shakespeare in the Square presents a stripped-down, food-inspired take on Shakespeare's classic comedy of desperate lovers, would-be tragedians, and meddling fairies. More…
This production of 'Midsummer' will be performed on a bare stage with minimal props and costumes. A cast of six performs all the major roles, exploring the thematic and playful potential of doubling actors as fairies, lovers, royals, and mechanicals. This is a very physical, athletic production, and the creative staging transforms a blank space from Athens to the woods to the fairy kingdom and back again. To highlight the madness/mess of the play, the company has introduced a variety of food-stuff: the Athenian wood is filled with mashed potatoes, marshmallow goop, pasta, and more.
