This unique adaptation of Shakespeare's whimsical story of romance, mischief and magic is set in the 1940s and performed promenade-style, where you follow the action and actors around the space. In this play, one of Shakespeare's most popular, four young lovers venture into the woods on a midsummer's night and 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 in the forest 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." Learn More

As a frequent theather goer I feel confident in highly recomending the production of this play. The actors turned in earnest moving performance and this is a play that not should be overlooked, despite it's small and out of the way venue.
Written by Karel Čapek
Directed by Brad Gunter
Running time is approximately 95 minutes.
About the Ticket Supplier: Strangeloop TheatreThough we officially incorporated as Strangeloop Theatre in October of 2008, it was in the early part of that year that a core group of us started meeting up to discuss creating a theatre company we could call home. In June of 2008, we did a one-night staging of Welcome to the Moon (and other plays) by John Patrick Shanley as our first performance, because we could do a collection of short pieces using multiple directors and actors within the group. It was a wonderful first endeavor and helped to further strengthen a sense of community within the group.
That sense of community helped us to grow over the course of our first two years -- staging work that allows a number of voices to participate in the theatrical process. In addition to producing strong work by well-known playwrights, such as Brian Friel's Living Quarters, we have also shown a commitment to working with theatre artists of every discipline in the creation of new and original work, including our world-premiere adaptation of Ferdinand Raimund's The Millionaire Farmer, our holiday cabaret shows and our short play workshop series, Loopshop.
