Teacher’s Night Out at African American Shakespeare
Lovers, Amazon women, and mystical fairies share the stage in this colorfully imaginative tale of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream set in Trinidad & Tobago’s Carnival. The audience becomes part of the cast as they are taken through an enchanted forest upon a magical night revealing star-crossed lovers, magical fairies, and a troupe. All before the Carnival celebration on the Duke and Duchess’ wedding day.
Marian’s Note: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. Because of the costumes and changes in sets it moves fast enough so that even if small children can’t follow the plot, they still enjoy the show.
