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

Very creative. We tend to enjoy new works and this did not fail. Two sisters coming to grips with a bunch of stuff in the middle of a dump. This is a troup that specializes in combat and it was included. Much of it looked real - some of that has to hurt. Good show - if you like new work and BWB, you'll like this. Tiny theatre - 31 seats (3 of them on the stage) - but it works.

The play itself was ok, but I thought the acting was not up to par. The part that impressed me was that two women were doing choreographed fighting, and they did that quite well. Their verbal fighting however, didn't seem honest/genuine.
