About the Show

A comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1595. Shakespeare's hilarious comedy gets complicated from the start--Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander. On the outside is Helena, whose unreturned love burns for Demetrius. The four lovers run away to the forest only to have Puck the fairy make both of the boys fall in love with Helena. In the forest, unbeknownst to the mortals, Oberon and Titania (King and Queen of the faeries) are having a spat when Oberon's head mischief-maker, Puck, runs loose with a flower which causes people to fall in love with the first thing they see upon waking. Throw in a group of amateur actors preparing a play for the Duke's wedding (one of whom is given a donkey's head and Titania for a lover by Puck) and the complications become fantastically funny.

The play will be performed atop the English gardens and staged with the majestic backdrop of Salisbury House. Nightly performances begin at 7:30 pm with one 20-minute intermission. Gates open at 6:00 pm for seating.

Plastic lawn chairs are provided, however you are welcome to bring your own foldable bag chair, a small blanket and a picnic. Designated blanket areas are limited. Please note that red wine is not permitted on the property. As a fundraiser for the event, our concessions will be selling beer and wine (by the glass or bottle), hard cider, non-alcohol beverages, and ice cream. Cash & credit cards accepted.
