A Midsummer Night’s Dream

by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
directed by MICHAEL PERLMAN

6 actors, 19 characters, 90 minutes of magic

We’ve cut the Bard’s most magical comedy to a fun and frenzied 90 minutes, so you can have your Shakespeare to go! Each of our ten tour stops is absolutely free to audience members thanks to the Friends of PlayMakers and donations to our annual fund. What are you waiting for?

“Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
Puck, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Through partnerships with area non-profits, community organizations, and local schools and libraries, in locations across the Triangle, PlayMakers presents professional-quality, bare bones productions of Shakespeare plays and more, cut to ninety minutes or less. In doing so, we aim to connect with new audiences in their own spaces, truly meeting them where they live. By revealing theatre to be accessible, relevant, and vital, Mobile Shakespeare+ creates a new audience for timeless plays and allows PlayMakers to foster new relationships throughout the region.

By Jerry Ruiz. Since I arrived here at PlayMakers in August, one of my major projects has been launching our Mobile Shakespeare initiative. This pilot program follows in the tradition of the original Carolina Playmakers and takes inspiration from the incredibly impactful work of Michelle Hensley and her Minneapolis-based theater company, Ten Thousand Things.
