Directed by Beth Wolf

August 18-19 & 25-26, 2012
Presented outdoors at Touhy Park


Thanks to Beth Wolf’s sure direction of a flexible, mirthful ensemble, it’s a fantastic debut production. … Midsommer Flight’s actors are passionate and dedicated – and possess enormous talent to back up their fervor. … When done right, Dream is pure hedonistic fun – and Midsommer Flight does it right. Shakespeare’s language sparkles in the night air, out of the mouths of a clever cast who relishes each syllable. Director Wolf understands the play’s underlying themes: love, spontaneity, fate and heart, delivered with a healthy sense of humor that’s essential to human nature and survival. While scenes are rife with giggly sexual tension, this Dream is not only family-friendly but also a wonderful way to introduce others to Shakespeare. During the show, several casual passersby became engaged audience members, which in and of itself is magic. — Lauren Whalen, Chicago Theater Beat
