“I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was." Oh God, I hate when people tell me about their dreams...
We will be heading deep in the forests of Athens among the fairy folk with Shakespeare's beloved Fantasy classic "A Midsummer Night's Dream". But because it's us, we will be playing in our distinct style, "Shakespeare Raw".
"But I'm not familiar with the play" you say, well, here's the gist: Shakespeare's intertwined love polygons begin to get complicated from the start--Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander. Bad news is, Hermia's father wants Demetrius for a son-in-law. On the outside is Helena, whose unreturned love burns hot for Demetrius. Hermia and Lysander plan to flee from the city under cover of darkness but are pursued by an enraged Demetrius (who is himself pursued by an enraptured Helena). In the forest, unbeknownst to the mortals, Oberon and Titania (King and Queen of the fairies) are having a spat over a servant boy. And then it gets complicated.
Cost is $10 at the door or $5 if you're in Outdoor gear. Don't know what that means? Well, did you know that clothing sold at places like Erehwon and North Face are suitable for activities like hiking and canoeing? Yeah, not just walking to the nearest fair-trade coffee shop.
So get ready for a night of wacky times because “The course of true love never did run smooth.”
