The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare

by William Shakespeare

 

The Play

The perfect choice for families or any time-challenged theater fans. This 75-minute abridged version introduces Shakespeare’s magical comedy to family and school audiences in a new production in The Yard, where its extended run will serve thousands of additional students and families next year. One evening, four young lovers find themselves lost in the forest. When the Fairy Court finds them, hijinks and hilarity ensue until the dawn. Following the performance, the cast remains on stage for a question-and-answer session, then joins the audience in the lobby for conversation and photos. This production will most be enjoyed by those ages 10 and up.
