Scotch Oakburn College is pleased to present ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ as this year’s senior play.
The forest outside Athens is a busy place on this magical night! Four runaway Athenian lovers (Helena, Hermia, Lysander and Demetrius) find themselves in the middle of a dispute between the King and Queen of the fairies. And, as if that wasn’t enough merriment and confusion, a troupe of amateur actors led by our two Bottoms (the Mechanicals) are trying to rehearse their play about Pyramus and Thisbe in preparation for presenting it on the eve of the marriage between the Duke of Athens – Theseus and Hippolyta. Between these unlikely groups flies in our mischievous Pucks, armed only with their wicked sense of mischief and a love potion capable of making anyone fall for the first person they set eyes upon. What could possibly go wrong?
