    He was born in 1564, but historians lose track of Will Shakespeare until around 1590. This play gleefully jumps in to fill in the gaps of his so-called "lost years." Will is a 21-year-old dreamer, the father of three and quite jobless. His wife is distracted by the amorous attentions of their neighbor. Poverty, lust and gender confusion rock everyone's boat, but, in the end, fortune smiles on the aspiring young poet. Learn More

    In this rollicking adaptation of Shakespeare's play, teens, 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, well-meaning goofs stumble into their 15 minutes of fame and fairies weave magic to bring it all to a happy end. Three streetwise storytellers pull the audience at breakneck speed toward the moon-drenched conclusion. Learn More
