Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
A theatre performance by Wayne State College students.
Imagine the celebrated marriage of a duke and queen upstaged by the antics of four star-crossed lovers. The Wayne State College production of "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" overflows with turmoil and delight as wrongs get righted, lovers fight and forgive, and actors have their big moment just before the curtain falls.
One of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" is a delightful exploration of the highs and lows of love, exacerbated by the magic of forest fairies. The WSC Theatre Program will deliver this energetic play set in the 1930s.
