About A Midsummer Night’s Dream
A fairy King and Queen come across four runaway lovers and a gaggle of amateur actors trying to rehearse a play in the forest. The magical royal couple meddles with the mortal lives, culminating in a comical cluster of confusion. But don’t worry, we’ll get to the Bottom of it.
