A Midlife Summer’s Dream, a comedy by Charlotte Runde and directed by Ken Wolpert. is coming up on March 23, 2014 at 3 pm in the ArtsCenter’s Westend theatre as part of the Almost Ready Series of staged readings sponsored by the ArtsCenter and by Playground a theatrical cooperative that brings actors and writers together to develop new work.
Twenty years after the weddings that end Midsummer Night’s Dream all is not well in ancient Athens. Theseus is having unexpected difficulties with Hippolyta. The two male lovers from Shakespeare’s play, Lysander and Demetrius, now married with children, discover magic led to their falling in love with their respective wives, Hermia and Helena, decide they were duped and demand divorces. Titania, the fairy queen, attempts to undo what she sees as her husband Oberon’s mistaken interference. So does Puck.
Her solution involves pirates. Puck’s solution involves prunes.
Almost Ready offers audiences an opportunity to see simply staged full length plays by North Carolina writers as the final stage in the process of being prepared for possible production. It is free and open to the public.
This free series is sponsored by The ArtsCenter of Carrboro and Playground a Theatre Cooperative.
These productions are seen as the last step before deciding what, if anything, needs to be tweaked to make these plays suitable for full production. The audience will be encouraged to offer comments in post-performance discussions with playwrights, directors, and actors.
Beer and wine will be available for purchase. But no rotten tomatoes.Find out more »
