The Company of Fools is returning to Maplewood Park, once again bringing Shakespeare’s plays to North Grenville. Don’t miss this year’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Tuesday, August 8, at 7:00 p.m.
The Company of Fools makes Shakespeare accessible to audiences of all ages, whether you read his plays many years ago, or are a young student still working through the Robert Munsch collection.
Love and marriage are no simple matter for the characters of this play. Helena loves Demetrius. Demetrius loves Hermia. Hermia loves Lysander. Throw an enchanted forest, a mischievous fairy, and a feuding king and queen into this mix and you have a recipe for a hilarious, magical, love-filled summer night. The production will time travel back to a mystical era reminiscent of the Victorian age, while mashing it up with some more familiar elements of the 21st Century
What better venue to enchant an audience with a story of love, magic and humour than under the trees in Maplewood Park and next to the newly installed gazebo? All are welcome. There is no fixed admission fee, as The Company of Fools will pass the hat at the end of the production.
Attending this event comes with ‘bragging rights’, so invite a friend, bring visiting family, or contact your former English teacher. Come and enjoy!
