About Midsummer


Production 1: Theatre

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Shakespeare stands out in the repertory of English dramatic literature, not only through his unparalleled use and invention of language, but more particularly because of his ability to bring onto the stage archetypal qualities of humanity in concrete, highly individualized characters.  Moreover, he still had an inkling of the influence of invisible beings on human life, and brings those into his dramatis personae in plays such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Tempest.
