William & Mary Theatre is pleased to announce its final production of the season, A Midsummer Night's Dream, written by William Shakespeare and directed by Laurie Wolf.

You are cordially invited to the wedding of Duke Theseus of Athens and his Amazonian bride Hippolyta. But before the celebration begins, four star-crossed lovers must sort out their own romantic destinies. Hermia and Lysander are deeply in love, but Hermia’s father wants her to marry Demetrius. Demetrius is pursued by Helena, whose passion goes painfully unrequited. When the Duke tells Hermia that she must obey her father or else die or enter a convent, she and Lysander flee into a nearby wood, where they are followed by Demetrius and Helena. In another part of Athens, a group of artisans – or ‘mechanicals’ – are rehearsing a play to be performed at Theseus’ and Hippolyta’s nuptials. The actors are earnest if not very skillful, and they, too, make plans to rendezvous in the same wood.

7:30pm Thursday - Saturday, 2:00pm Sunday
