Friday, March 13, 2020


The seventh in our 2019-20 Center Series

Direct from the Blackfriars Playhouse, the American Shakespeare Center on Tour delivers seriously fun Shakespeare to audiences at performing arts centers, universities, and selective high schools throughout the U.S. Since 1988, ASC on Tour has entertained audiences each year by offering three plays performed in repertory by the same troupe of actors. From single-day events to week-long interactive residencies, ASC on Tour has earned its reputation as one of America’s most respected touring theatre groups. A Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1595/96. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta (the former queen of the Amazons). These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.
