THE STORY: A cleverly compressed version of Shakespeare's classic comedy, this adaptation preserves the original poetry while simplifying the language and adding practical stage directions. The story is framed by the Dreamer, a modern student frustrated in her attempts to memorize (and make sense of) a Midsummer monologue. As she begins to nod off, the Dreamer is visited by Puck, an impish fairy who sweeps the sleeping girl into the play itself — a world of mischief, magic, and love.
