Mid-autumn is the perfect time for a little Midsummer! Shakespeare’s ever-popular comedy comes to the stage in a special collaboration between the Artists of Concordia Theatre and the CUC Chamber Orchestra. The night before Theseus and Hippolyta’s royal wedding, four Athenians flee into the forest in pursuit of true love. Meddling fairies, misplaced affections and at least one donkey complicate the plot to hilarious effect.
