Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be coming to Garfield Park Conservatory, 300 N. Central Park Ave., 3 p.m. Sunday, July 20.
A specially equipped truck equipped with a stage will roll into the park – one of 18 citywide that’s hosting the actors – this weekend.In this popular Shakespearean comedy, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a gaggle of hapless actors and mischievous sprites cross paths with the king and queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute.
Audiences will be transported to a wondrous wood brimming with paramours and possibilities where the inexplicable magic of falling in love—and the marvel of waking up from the sweetest of dreams—is discovered.
Director David H. Bell has adapted this Shakespeare favorite into an acrobatic and riotously entertaining version of the play.
If you can’t make this weekend’s performance, there will be two others on the West Side:
Riis Park 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 29
Uphill near the picnic groves, 6100 W. Fullerton Ave.
Columbus Park, 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 10
500 S. Central Ave.
