Gunston: Shakespeare Midsummer Night’s Dream

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Randy Baker

“The best in this kind are but shadows.”  (Act V, Scene 1)

WSC Avant Bard presents a magical new take on  A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare’s comedy of forbidden love and meddling fairies. Director Randy Baker, renowned for his visually stunning work with Rorschach Theatre, reimagines Shakespeare’s classic using Indonesian-inspired shadow puppets accompanied by an actor-driven percussion orchestra. This is one thrilling theatrical experience you’ll have to see and hear to believe.
