A Midsummer Nights Dream

written by William Shakespeare | directed by Damian Torres-Botello
   

Erupting Your Fantasies

Love, in all its forms, is at the center of Shakespeare’s most magical play where chaos and mishaps abound as fiery lovers, amateur actors, mischievous fairies and the forces of nature collide. This wacky, whimsical and reimagined production is Detroit Mercy Theatre Company’s first Shakespearian play in almost a decade! Witness a world transformed into a place of magic, laughter and healing, as we journey into the woods to unearth the follies and foibles of human beings…and fairies.
