By William Shakespeare
Performed by Alabama Shakespeare Festival’s Fellowship Company
Set in ancient Athens, the play is associated with the gods and goddesses of the Greek pantheon, mythical creatures who often manifested themselves to humans in strange, sometimes terrifying, and often magical ways. Love is the primary concern of the play, even when love is mutual it is often hampered by family disapproval. Commenting on the often difficult course of true love, and the conflict between imagination and reason, it is also a joyful and festive play, filled with dancing and singing, fairies and enchantment. Drenched in moonlight and filled with dreamers, this play is meant to mesmerize its audience.
