Director’s Vision:  This production of Midsummer Night’s Dream takes place during the 1930s depression in New York City’s Central Park.  The Duke is actually a Mob Boss, Egeus a less powerful Mob Boss, the lovers are privileged children of Mob Bosses, Oberon is a failed gambler who is now living in a shanty town in Central Park and Titania is a former star of the stage who cannot get work and is also living in Central Park.  The young lovers, to be played by teenagers, Hermia, Lysander, Helena and Demetrius run away from the watchful eyes of the Mob Boss’ Henchman and go into Central Park moving through the shanty town trying to hide their identities.  There, amid shelters made of found objects, they are mystified by Oberon’s fairies as the long night transforms to day.

Synopsis:  A hilarious comedy by Shakespear with love triangles, intrigue, enchantments, and more. Watch for more to be provided.
