Set against a classical Athenian backdrop, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” examines the universal theme of love and its attendant complications: passion, lust, frustration, depression, confusion and marriage. Aquila weaves a theatrical web that shows audiences the heart of an enchanted forest, the injustice of the Athenian court and the political strife of the Fairy Kingdom. The New York Times praised Aquila Theatre’s production as “Timely and pleasing … this ‘Dream’ soothes the eye and tickles the funny bone.”
