A Midsummer Night’s Dream – San Mateo Library
6:00pm Tuesday, April 25, 2023 – San Francisco Shakespeare Festival’s Shakespeare on Tour comes to the san Mateo Public Library with our production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Admission is free and no tickets are required. People of all ages will find this quintessential comedy engaging as well as enriching. Mixed-up lovers, sparring fairies, and bumbling actors all collide in a confluence of comedy and conflict that will have you laughing out loud. A Midsummer Night’s Dream cushions impactful themes of human existence in word-play and physical comedy, leaving room for further learning while delighting and energizing. Plus, walk-on roles for volunteers will invite attendees to join in the fun. Our production, a one-hour version thoughtfully cut from Shakespeare’s original texts, travels to you with a cast of professional actors with costumes, set, props, and sound. At the conclusion of the show the cast will stay for a short Q&A session with the audience.
