Sunday in the Park With Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream


The New Rochelle Council on the Arts presents the Lawnchair Theatre Company’s production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Ay me! For aught that I could ever read,
Could ever hear by tale or history,
The course of true love never did run smooth. -Act I, Scene 1.

Shakespeare’s comedy gets its second LawnChair Theatre staging.  Lovers, fairies, and an amateur troupe of performers cross paths on a midsummer night in the woods outside of Athens,  where mischievous spirits, mistaken identities, and magic potions make for mystery and merriment. Our play is set in modern day Athens, where face-to-face connection has been replaced by screen-to-screen communication. Lovers, politicians, and workman  –  all are so busy perfecting their profiles that they fail to see the mystical world unfolding before them. In desperate need of a vacation from the virtual, LawnChair Theatre’s production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream will ask the question “Can you hear me now? I’m standing right in front of you.”

LawnChair is excited to be making its New Rochelle debut this summer. Hudson Park promises to be an exceptionally beautiful backdrop for the merriment and mishaps of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This performance is graciously sponsored by the  New Rochelle Council on the Arts.  We suggest a donation of $20 for adults an $10 for students and seniors.  Additional contributions will be accepted.
