Shakespeare's beloved comedy is transported to a wintry forest for an enchanting escape this season. The whimsical story of romance, mischief and magic follows four young lovers into the woods on a sparkling cold night as they become the unwitting victims in a lover's quarrel between the king and queen of fairies. When a group of local rustics rehearsing a play also gets caught up in the madness, the comical snarl of spells seems impossible to sort out. But with fairies and sprites all around, it just takes a little more magic and, as Puck puts it, "all is mended." Kristin Clippard directs. Tickets for opening night include an hors d'oeuvres/dessert reception. Learn More

Stupendous actors!!! My family of three enjoyed every minute of this play. Personally, I got caught up in the moment. The props were sparse but it worked. Kudos to everyone involved. The lecture prior to the play was spot-on. More please!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Rarely does a literary classic transfer from page to stage as eloquently as Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice does in the current production by the Annapolis Shakespeare Company at Bowie Playhouse. Everything works beautifully, beginning with Jon Jory's engaging stage adaptation, which is faithful to Austen's prose and yet holds its relevance to contemporary audiences. Sally Boyett-D'Angelo's smart direction of the dream cast she has assembled creates exciting theater, where every actor fully delivers." --Baltimore Sun
- "A stunning gem of theatrical brilliance, this perfectly-paced production delights its way into the audience’s heart while animating many a moment of sheer splendor from a very classy time gone by." --DC Metro Theatre Arts
