    A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare

    Directed by Makenna Masenheimer

    Part of the Friday Night Play Reading Series

    Hermia and Lysander are in love. Hermia’s father, Egeus, is forcing her to marry Demetrius. Demetrius is in love with Hermia but is being pursued by Helena. What better way to sort out this tangled love triangle than to escape to the forest? Shakespeare’s classic comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” delights with magic, fairies, confusion and passion. Staged outdoors, this production transports you to the enchanted woods of Athens to revel in the misadventures of the frustrated lovers, mischievous fairies and more.

    Venue:  Performed outdoors, next to Reeves Library on Moravian College’s North Campus. (In case of rain: inside the Haupert Union Building, located on Moravian College’s North campus at the corner of Laurel and Monocacy Streets.)
