Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” Opens at Dublin High School This Thursday

October 23, 2017

DUBLIN, CA–Dublin High School Drama’s fall play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, opens this Thursday, October 26 at 7 PM in the Center for Performing Arts and Education, and runs through Sunday, October 29. This classic Shakespearean comedy follows four parallel events: the Duke of Athens’ marriage to the Amazonian Queen Hippolyta; the adventures of four Athenian lovers; a group of six amateur actors, and the fairies who inhabit the enchanted forest in which much of the play takes place.

To escape an arranged marriage, two of the lovers elope into the enchanted forest while the other pair, at odds with one another, follow in pursuit. Puck, a mischievous imp, gets involved but ultimately makes matters worse with the help of a poisoned flower. Chaos ensues when everyone’s world gets turned upside down to which Lysander laments, “The course of true love never did run smooth.”​
