The overall concept for this Midsummer Night’s Dream would be to focus on the haunted forest. This is the domain of the faerie folk. This is the place where they twist and warp reality. They create apparitions and visions to bewitch the intruders. The lovers are trespassing on faerie turf and must pay the penalty. They become the unwilling entertainment for the silly games of the Faerie Folk. It is really up to the likes of Oberon, Titania, and especially Puck, whether or not Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius make it out of the forest in one piece. We hope to bring a spooky twisted “Dream” to the stage summer 2019.
