A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Directed by MFA Candidate John Zibell
Wyatt Pavilion Theatre
Weds – Sat, 2/24-27, 8pm
Sun, 2/28, 2pm
In his 6 person version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, director John Zibell explores the dark dreamscape at the heart of the play. Zibell’s sinister but funny adaptation interposes video projection into the live performance, creating a multi-layered interrogation of the subconscious and performative elements of self, sex and love, society and betrayal. This dreamy-fairy-fiend-romp will entice, contort, and restructure all you hold dear in Shakespeare, bringing unexpected and exciting clarity to this beloved classic.
There will be a talk-back session after the Wednesday, February 24, performance, hosted by Shakespearean expert, Professor Peter Lichtenfels.
