2019 brings you two of Shakespeare's great plays: Measure for Measure and A Midsummer Nights Dream. 

Exciting site-specific outdoor productions of the works of William Shakespeare in Fredericton. 

7:30pm (patrons should arrive at 7:15)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare’s most popular and best-known comedy, a tale of magic, mischievous fairies, and love lost and found on a charmed and chaotic summer night in the woods.

In early 1950s Hollywood, Duke Theseus, head producer and leading man of Athens Studios, is set to wed reigning Queen of the Screen Hippolyta, cementing a merger with Amazon Pictures, when he is forced to intervene in a case of romantic entanglements between four of the studio’s star actors.

When the lovers flee Hollywood for the forest nearby, things get even more complicated as the fairy spirits of the woods become involved, and as a company of studio backstage workers preparing a hilariously bad play for the wedding gets caught in the crossfire.
