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.
