A Midsummer Night's Dream

Written by William Shakespeare

Directed by Kate Muchmore

Athens: The future. Automation and technology have taken over society. Cyber-warrior Theseus struggles to conquer the heart of the woman he is to marry. The teenagers Lysander and Hermia have fallen in love through the virtual reality of cyberspace, but her father insists she marry someone better connected to the network of the city. Demetrius, once committed to Helena, has left her to pursue a marriage better suited to his career objectives. True love has become only a dream for the people of Athens. Do some shrewd forest sprites and a blundering group of computer techies have what it takes to restore love to them all?
