About: Days before a royal wedding, four young lovers, oppressed by Athenian Law, flee to the forest in search of freedom. The lovers, as well as an amateur acting troupe preparing for the wedding, find themselves trapped in a lovers quarrel between the Fairy Queen, King, and their mischievous servant. As relationships get further entangled, reality dissolves and chaos ensues, we see the foolishness of humans and their impossible fight for control on comedic display.

 

From The Director: In this iteration, a group of people on a camping trip find themselves in conflict and looking to turn the night around. Without many other opportunities, they turn to the age-old tradition of oral storytelling. Each of them dons a character (or two) to collectively enact and improvise the campfire story of Midsummer. As it unfolds, we see the absurd, magical, and harsh realities of humanity. Through laughter we are able to see things more clearly, including the cruelities humans impose on one another. Through the process of this storytelling game fences are mended, lessons aree learned, and a childlike spirit is found. They find the restorative and therapeutic nature of telling stories with a community.

Content Warnings: Alcohol and drug use, sexual moments
