A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s best early works, an airy, romantic romp in the woods among bumbling rustics, temporarily star-crossed lovers, and the charming fairies who bewitch them all. Drawing on a popular English folk legend and annual holiday, Shakespeare weaves a chaotic and comical tale of misunderstanding, mischief and magic in which, like the dream-state it mimics, no harm is permanent and all is pleasantly resolved by the play’s end. A joyous celebration of love, language, and life itself, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare at his lyrical best.
