Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park: A Midsummer Night’s Dream @ Myriad Botanical Gardens

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

  • Directed by Lance Marsh
  • June 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23, 8pm
  • For ticket information on cost and purchase visit here.

In Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, two couples deal with love and all its complications – confusion, jealousy, and passion. Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia. When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies. In Shakespeare’s family-friendly comedy, anything is possible when young lovers – human and fairy royalty – and an amateur theater troupe reel through romance and spell craft in a moonlit Athenian forest.
