Description

Ct Free Shakespeare presents A Midsummer Night's Dream

CT Free Shakespeare (CFS) presents Shakespeare’s most magical and romantic comedy under the stars at historic McLevy Green in downtown Bridgeport. This is the play in which Shakespeare tells us ‘the course of true love never did run smooth.’ The story takes place as festivities are planned for the marriage of Duke Theseus to Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons.  Two lovers elope during the night followed secretly by two lovesick admirers.  They cross paths in a nearby forest with town craftsmen rehearsing a celebratory play for the duke and his bride. All are caught up in the disquiet of the fairy world resulting from a fierce falling out between the fairy, King Oberon and his queen, Titania. Identities are mistaken.  Potions go awry.  Mayhem and hilarity ensue. “Ultimately, true love prevails, and all live happily ever after.” CFS is proud to work with actors courtesy of The Actors' Equity Association, the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States.  Bring chairs or blankets for seating. It is traditional to set up seating early and picnic.
