About the Show

by William Shakespeare
in a modern verse translation by Jeff Whitty
In partnership with Play On Shakespeare

The woods are the stage for a hilarious whirlwind of mismatched love, mischievous fairies and theatrical blundering. Shakespeare weaves a comedic tapestry where love’s arrows fly wild, mistaken identities create chaos and laughter reigns supreme. Transformed hearts and second chances dance under the moonlight, casting a spell that resonates with audiences across generations.

Play On About Us Statement
Play On Shakespeare is a non-profit company promoting and creating contemporary modern translations of Shakespeare’s plays. Play On Shakespeare partners with artists and organizations across the globe to deliver and advocate for these translations through theatrical productions, podcasts, and publications. For more information, visit playonshakespeare.org. Play On Shakespeare is made possible through generous support of the Hitz Foundation.
