TCDS Presents - Shakespeare in the Quad: A Midsummer Night's Dream
Have you ever wanted to know what happens to a character once they leave the stage? Have you ever felt compelled to explore the world of a play beyond the confines of the theatre walls? Well now you can. Directors Travis DeWolf and Liz Laywine explore the multiple storylines of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a new production that embraces a wide variety of artistic mediums including (but not limited to) poetry, dance, shadow puppetry, and newly devised scenes which will be combined with the original text of the play. Follow characters, reveal secrets, and discover the story and the world of the play like never before in this “choose your own adventure” format. This show breaks down the convention of the silent, static spectator sitting in a dark room, as audience will be given the opportunity to view the performance at their own pace, ask questions, and in some cases become involved in the action of the show, directly influencing responses from performers. This unique and exciting production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream promises to be unlike anything that Trinity College’s Shakespeare in the Quad has ever presented as we push the boundaries of Shakespeare in performance as well as expanding the possibilities of theater as an art form. Show Dates: Thursday, October 2nd - 8 PM Friday, October 3rd - 8 PM Pre-show starts at 7:30. Pay what you can.
