A Midsummer Night's Dream
3269 Casitas Ave Atwater Village
Open Fist Theatre Company presents a provocative new production of A Midsummer Night's Dream set in the Antebellum South. Intrigued by the Mechanicals' line "That would hang us every mother's son," director James Fowler has moved the action from Athens, Greece to Athens, Georgia circa 1855. There, with Shakespeare's text unchanged, we enter a world where the magic of an enslaved people plays out in the lives of those to whom they remain invisible.
