Shakespeare on the Square - A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Sunday, Aug 4, 2019 at 7:00pm

Historic Market Square
Wall Avenue and Union Avenue
Knoxville, TN 37902

This famous romantic comedy is set in the Athenian woods on one magical midsummer night. Two young lovers, pursued by rivals for their love, spurned fathers and the angry Duke of Athens find themselves lost in a magical wonderland peopled by the King and Queen of the fairies and their sprite henchmen Robin Goodfellow, known as Puck. All three delight in playing games with mere mortals who chance to enter their woods. Add a group of rowdy tradesmen seeking a secluded spot to rehearse their play for the Duke’s wedding and you have all the ingredients for a wild evening of magic and comedy that could only have come from the glorious imagination of William Shakespeare. “Oh, what fools these mortals be.”
