A Midsummer Night\'s Dream or The Night They Missed the Forest for the Trees
A Midsummer Night's Dream or The Night They Missed the Forest for the Trees
By Nancy Linehan Charles. Adapted from Shakespeare.

Cast: 4m., 6w., 9 either gender, extras as desired. We're in study hall where just about everyone is doing everything except studying for tomorrow's test on A Midsummer Night's Dream. That is, until Jessie gets an idea. In this rollicking adaptation of Shakespeare's play (wherein is examined the adolescent urges of just about everybody), teenagers, fairies, workers and royalty collide in a forest on a summer night and are bedazzled by a prankster. The fairy queen falls in love with an ass, the teens fall in and out (and in) love with each other, six well-meaning goofs stumble into their 15 minutes of fame, fairies weave magic to bring it all to a happy end as only Shakespeare can conjure the tapestry, and three streetwise storytellers pull the audience at breakneck speed toward the moon-drenched conclusion. Bare stage w/ props. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
