“The course of love never did run smooth.” Lysander (Act I, scene i)

Love. Desire. Transformation.

William Shakespeare’s timeless fantasy follows three separate but intertwining stories–the Lovers, the Mechanicals, and the Fairies–over the course of a single night. As each thread mingles with the next, the forest becomes an enchanted playground in which affections are misdirected and the limits of love are tested before order is ultimately restored. Experience this joyful production as it was truly meant to be performed…outdoors under the canopy of Oak Park’s beautiful Austin Gardens.

Running time is approximately 2 hours.

Previews July 13-14

Performances July 15-August 19
