A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company
Sept. 8-30
Over-the-Rhine

Directed by Brian Isaac Phillips

Cast: Geoffrey Warren Barnes II as Peaseblossom, Darnell Pierre Benjamin as Theseus, Kyle Brumley as Demetrius, Billy Chace as Snug, Sara Clark as Puck, Cary Davenport as Mustardseed, Giles Davies as Oberon, Jeremy Dubin as Francis Flute, Candice Handy as a fairy, Matthew Lewis Johnson as Nick Bottom, Sylvester Little, Jr as Philostrate/Cobweb, Courtney Lucien as Hermia, Justin McCombs as Robin Starveling, Miranda McGee as Titania, Caitlin McWethy as Helena, Kelly Mengelkoch as Quince, Barry Mulholland as Egeus, Maggie Lou Rader as HIppolyta, Paul Riopelle as Tom Snout, Tess Talbot as Moth & Crystian Wiltshire as Lysander

Hermia loves Lysander. Lysander loves Hermia. Demetrius loves Hermia. Helena loves Demetrius, and no one loves Helena. When this convoluted love quadrangle flees from prying parental eyes to the forest, they run straight into an ongoing bitter dispute between Oberon and Titania, the King and the Queen of the Fairies, and magical interference turns all their relationships topsy-turvy. Meanwhile, a troupe of enthusiastic but inept thespians likewise falls into magical mayhem as their leading man, Bottom, finds himself the butt of a fairy joke when the trickster Puck swaps his head for a donkey’s – an alteration that Titania finds a distinct improvement.
