The Shakespeare Project of Chicago theatrical reading series presents free Shakespeare.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
In dreams, anything is possible. The recipe for Shakespeare’s most popular comedy includes a group of two young lovers, some amateur actors, and, of course, an assortment of fairies, including Oberon and Titania, in the midst of a bitter custody battle. The play commences with a marriage and then the fun really begins. What better time to depart Chicago’s cold winter and sojourn to Athens and its nearby forests? Melanie Keller makes her Shakespeare Project directing debut.

Founded in 1996, The Shakespeare Project of Chicago was created to achieve three main goals:
- To bring to life the words of William Shakespeare and the world’s other great dramatists.
- To foster the talents of members of Actors’ Equity Association, the professional union of actors and stage managers.
- To present the plays to members of our community for free.
