A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. Puck, a mischievous fairy, plays tricks on four Athenians in the forest, making two men fall in love with the same woman. The four lovers run through the forest in pursuit of one another while Puck also helps his master to trick the fairy queen.

As COVID-19 began to alter our ability to perform live theatre for a while, the team behind the Theatre program at CFCArts leapt to action in efforts to continue to produce theatre even in the midst of a global pandemic, and that is how our Audio-Play version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream was born.

Download or Stream this audio-play for $5 or pay what you will. Half of all sales will go to the artists involved, and the other half will contribute to the on-going sustainability of the Theatre Program at CFCArts!
