OSU's Bard In The Quad 2015 Presents: A Midsummer Night's Dream

“The course of true love never did run smooth.”

Come and celebrate 10 years of Bard in the Quad with one of Shakespeare’s most romantic tales!

Set in the mysterious city of Athens, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a sweeping fantasy of love, mischief, and magic. In the midst of celebrating their upcoming marriage, Duke Theseus and Hippolyta become drawn into the romantic conflicts of a quartet of young lovers and an inept troupe of eager amateur actors. The orderly human world becomes further complicated by an all-out war between the King and Queen of the fairy world and a mischievous maverick fairy on the loose.

Shakespeare’s lush and vivid fantasy comes to life in the MU Quad with comedy and romance featuring dance accompanied by OSU Chamber Winds performing Felix Mendelssohn’s classic Midsummer Night’s Dream Suite.

No Picnic? No Problem!

Local restaurant Roxy Dawgs will be selling their delicious hot dogs on August 7, 8, 14 and 15, before the show and during intermission!
