Cambridge American Stage Tour 2018

A Midsummer Night's Dream


"All the world's a stage, And All the men and women merely players..."

Duke Frederick has usurped and exiled his brother Duke Ferdinand. Oliver de Boys is plotting against his brother Orlando's life. Rosalind has disguised herself as a man, and run off into the Forest of Ardenne alongside her cousin Celia. Jacques is meta-theatrically moping around the stage. Touchstone is trying desperately to herd goats. Silvius is being shunned by everyone he meets. Amiens's throat hurts. Shakespeare's early comedy takes us into a world of mistaken identities, murderous plots, cross-dressing, pastoral love, and wrestling.

With a modern, gender-bending, bohemian aesthetic, live music, and a lot of ribbons, CAST 2016 brings one of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies to the stage. Join us under the Greenwood tree.
