Tim Robbins directs this Actors' Gang workshop of Shakespeare's magical comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream, adding original music and minimal costumes, props and scenery. This whimsical story of romance, mischief and magic follows four young lovers into the woods on a midsummer's night as they become the unwitting victims in a lover's quarrel between the king and queen of the faeries. When a group of local folk 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

About the Ticket Supplier: Los Angeles Women's Theatre Festival
The Los Angeles Women’s Theater Festival (LAWTF) was founded by solo artist Adilah Barnes and Miriam Reed.
Adilah and Miriam were joined by solo artists of diverse disciplines (including actors, dancers, story tellers, performance artists, performance poets, sculptors and comedians).
LAWTF was inspired by the Women’s Theatre Festival in Philadelphia that had created the National Women’s Theatre Festival satellite in Los Angeles in 1992 at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). In 1993, LAWTF picked up the torch and continued the vision that had been planted by the Women’s Theater Festival in Los Angeles.
