Featuring an all-female cast, Zephyer Rep's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream sets the action in that wonderful era of folly and excess: 1980's. First mounted to much acclaim in 2006, Blake Bradford's Dream follows four young lovers as they flee the city of Athens to find freedom and love in the forest. There they discover a place of enchantment, inhabited by fairies and their warring masters, Titania and Oberon. A group of local artisans rehearsing a play also look to the forest for privacy, but everyone's plans are disrupted by the impish prankster Puck. One of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, A Midsummer Night's Dream evokes a world of rebellion, magic and romance, where chaos erupts, lovers are mismatched, and all is reconciled through the wonder and power of love.
