Coming June 25: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

On Sat­ur­day, June 25, Radio Riel will bring you a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion of Shake­speare’s A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream, by the Faire­lands Play­ers in asso­ci­a­tion with Fan­ta­sy Faire Radio & Radio Riel.

Orig­i­nal­ly pro­duced for Fan­ta­sy Faire 2016, the 70-minute per­for­mance, adapt­ed for radio and direct­ed by Saf­fia Wid­der­shins, and record­ed & pro­duced by Scott Simp­son, will be broad­cast at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time — 19:00 and 03:00 in the UK.

A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream is a com­e­dy writ­ten by William Shake­speare some­time between 1590 and 1597. It por­trays the events sur­round­ing the mar­riage of The­seus, the Duke of Athens, to Hip­poly­ta. These include the adven­tures of four young Athen­ian lovers and a group of six ama­teur actors (the mechan­i­cals) who are con­trolled and manip­u­lat­ed by the fairies who inhab­it the for­est in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shake­speare’s most pop­u­lar works for the stage and is wide­ly per­formed across the world.
