A Midsummer Viewing Party

The Boise Bard Players are bringing back one of our most popular shows to date for one night only.

Join us as we relive our August 2021 performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the big screen.

We will be at the Lounge at the End of the Universe on June 3rd at 7 pm for drinks and the first public showing of our recording from The Bishops’ House last summer.

Our patrons have heralded this production as one of our best to date! If you missed it the first time around, now is your chance to see the show that redefined The Boise Bard Players.

The best part? This event is FREE.

 

Plot Summary

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, residents of Athens mix with fairies from a local forest, with comic results. In the city, Theseus, Duke of Athens, is to marry Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons. Bottom the weaver and his friends rehearse in the woods a play they hope to stage for the wedding celebrations.

Four young Athenians are in a romantic tangle. Lysander and Demetrius love Hermia; she loves Lysander and her friend Helena loves Demetrius. Hermia’s father, Egeus, commands Hermia to marry Demetrius, and Theseus supports the father’s right.

All four young Athenians end up in the woods, where Robin Goodfellow (aka Puck), who serves the fairy king Oberon, puts flower juice on the eyes of Lysander, and then Demetrius, unintentionally causing both to love Helena. Oberon, who is quarreling with his wife, Titania, uses the flower juice on her eyes. She falls in love with Bottom, who now, thanks to Puck, wears an ass’ head.

As the lovers sleep, Puck restores Lysander’s love for Hermia, so each young woman is matched with the man she loves.

Oberon disenchants Titania and removes Bottom’s ass’s head. The two young couples join the royal couple in getting married, and Bottom rejoins his friends to perform the play.
