The Mechanicals

The Mechanicals

Adapted and directed by John Colston from A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare.

Buffoonery abounds in this adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic comedy when an improbable group of Athenian workers rehearse a play in an enchanted wood for the nuptials of the Duke of Athens and his bride.
