Welcome to Midsummer!

After last year’s Hamlet, which celebrated SFShakes’ 35th Anniversary Season, we’ve set our sights to funnier fare in the 2018 season with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The enduring love story showcases its comic romantic complexities right up front: Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia. Hermia is in love with Lysander, but her father would rather she be smitten with Demetrius.

And that’s just the Athenians. We’ve also got some fairies and a troupe of actors rehearsing a play to perform at the Duke’s wedding involved. At this point, a diagram may be helpful.

As you prepare your visit to the park (whether it’s dusting off the lawn chairs or trying to decide what to bring in the picnic basket), enjoy these creative summaries to bring you up to speed.
