SitW 2022 Season: A Midsummer Night's Dream
From Director, Andie Lerner (she/her): Days before a royal wedding, four young lovers, oppressed by Athenian Law, flee to the forest in search of freedom. The lovers, as well as an amateur acting troupe preparing for the wedding, find themselves trapped in a lovers quarrel between the Fairy Queen, King, and their mischievous servant. As relationships get further entangled, and chaos ensues we see the foolishness of humans and their impossible fight for control on comedic display.
Told by an ensemble of storytellers this production will explore the universality and complexity that has made A Midsummer Nights Dream one of the most popular Shakespeare plays and certainly comedies. In addition, it will investigate the restorative and therapeutic nature of telling stories with a community and why at the most severe times it is vital to tell your story, tell any story, and laugh till you cry!
