A Midsummer Night's Dream at The Wilmington Drama League!

A Midsummer Night's Dream
Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Ann Bartley and Jeff Robleto

May 28 and 29 at 8PM

BOX OFFICE - 302-764-1172
TICKETS $15 - $12 Students/Seniors - $8 Children

Falling in love has enough ups and downs for mere mortals, but when mischievous fairies get involved, it’s downright tumultuous. In the timeless comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare shows love gone awry through weaving together the mortal world, ancient Athens, and fairy magic. Enjoy the witty, shifty Puck mixing things up for the earnest quartet of confused young lovers, and watch Bottom, the comedically clueless aspiring thespian, become the object of affection for the glorious fairy queen Titania.
