Bring a blanket, a picnic basket and the whole family, and enjoy an evening of Theatre in the park.Widely recognized as a comic masterpiece, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works. The play has inspired numerous adaptations, including Felix Mendelssohn’s acclaimed musical score for a nineteenth-century production. Written about 1595, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is considered Shakespeare’s first mature comedy. The story of this delightful play enjoys brilliant characterization, richness of language, and compositional complexity that has provided critics and commentators with material for much theorizing and remains a timeless and limitless source of aesthetic pleasure.
