ROMANCE, magic and mayhem come to the fore in a classic Shakespeare comedy where “the course of true love never did run smooth”.
Directed by Amanda Crewes at The Actors’ Hub, A Midsummer Night’s Dream – believed to have been written in the mid-1590s – is masterful piece that deals with the universal theme of love and its complications.
The plot focuses on three parallel stories: the trials and experiences of two sets of lovers camping in a magical forest, the world of the Fairy King and Queen and their elves and a group of rough craftsmen attempting to stage a production for the wedding of the Duke of Athens.
Mischievous Puck plays Cupid and warns that falling in love can make fools of us all – but will crazy, mad love win out in the end?
A Midsummer Night’s Dream plays 7pm November 28, 29, 30, December 1 and 2. Tickets are $30, $25 concession – book at www.trybooking.com/SRDS.
The Actors’ Hub is at 129 Kensington Street, East Perth.
