A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Canadian Stage production

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Jamie Robinson

Canadian Stage is proud to celebrate 40 years of Dream in High Park with the return of this hilarious Shakespearean love story. 

A romantic comedy for the ages comes vividly to life in High Park. The night before Theseus and Hippolyta's royal wedding, four young Athenians flee into the forest in pursuit of true love. They fall into one love triangle, then another, and are caught in the crossfire of a custody battle between reigning fairies of the forest. Chaotic hilarity ensues. Will the Athenians end up with their perfect match? Who will win custody of the changeling child? And what other beloved characters might we meet along the way? Brilliantly directed by Jamie Robinson and brought to life by a hysterical cast, A Midsummer Night's Dream is sure to be a highlight of the summer.
