A Midsummer Night's Dream

Stratford Main Library

May 22, 2004

A panoramic shot of the opening court scene from the show.


Rival suitors Lysander (John Trigonis, left) and Demetrius (Nathan Decoux) square off for the hand of Hermia (Jennifer Short) as her father Aegeus (L. Robert Johnson) looks on. 


Hermia and Lysander plot their escape.

The mechanicals, crude men of Athens gather to get their parts for the tragical play Pyramus and Thisbe.


Flute (David Law) and Bottom (Carlos R. Fernandez) act out a strange lover's meeting through the Wall (Lisa Perez). 


The mischievious Puck (Andrew Gruen) meets with one of Titania's fairies (Miichell,e Smith)


In getting his revenge on his wife Titania (Gyda Arber), Oberon (Joshua Hill) places a love spell on her so she will fall in love with the first creature she sees.

And indeed falls for a guy with weird ears and strange eating habits.

After being turned into an ass, Bottom (Carlos R. Fernandez) is met by a love struck Titania (Gyda Arber)


She commands her fairies to attend to him.

A spell bound Demetrius (Nathan DeCoux) is induced to fall in love with a dumb founded Helena (Paula Galloway).


The lovers try to work out their differences as Hermia arrives on the scene.

With the couples happily married, the mechanicals finally gather to present their "tragedy" of Pyramus and Thisbe.


Lion (Michelle Smith, right) and Moonshine (Katherine Harte) address the royal audience. 

A wounded Pyramus (Carlos R. Fernandez) kills himself most gallantly for love.
