Set against a classical Athenian backdrop, A Midsummer Night’s Dream deals with the universal theme of love and its attendant complications: passion, lust, frustration, depression, confusion and of course, marriage. Aquila weaves a web of theatrical magic that takes audiences to the heart of an enchanted forest, the injustices of the Athenian court, the political strife of the Fairy King and Queen and their servants and a group of rude mechanicals attempting to stage a production of Pyramus and Thisbe for the wedding of the Duke of Athens. At the heart of the story is the Fairy King’s servant, the impish Puck, whose magic creates an endless supply of mirth, mistaken identity, and inappropriate, if not absolutely ludicrous, passions.

This event is limited to NYU students only. One complimentary ticket per student.
