A Midsummer’s Night Dream staged in Salem

The Fort Salem Theater is thrilled to invite audiences to escape the winter chill with its upcoming production of William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” on November 16, 17 and 19. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. There will be no performance on Saturday due to Greenwich’s Lighted Tractor Parade. 

In this rendition of Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, four young lovers find themselves ensnared in the dream-like embrace of an enchanted forest on a Midsummer’s night, where sprites lurk and fairies’ rule. The play begins at an upscale ski resort at present day, but unrest in the fairy kingdom causes the climate to shift. As the seasons swap, humans and fairies find themselves mixed up in love and magic.

The production team, led by Director Sarah Murphy, is set to deliver a captivating experience for audiences of all ages. Murphy, returning to Fort Salem Theater after her appearance in 2022’s “Pride and Prejudice,” is no stranger to literary classics, serving the community as the Library Director at Greenwich Free Library. She is also the co-director of Tiny Box Theater, with extensive experience in various theater capacities.
