Shakespeare in the Ravine '21
A Midsummer Nights Dream
7:30 pm Thurs-Sat July 22-24, 29-31
Shakespeare’s romantic weirdness spreads across the Ravine in this puppet filled frolic! Two sets of young lovers run away to the woods and land smack dab into the middle of a supernatural love spat between the king and queen of the fairy world. Add in the anarchic merry prankster Puck, and a troupe of hapless would-be thespians and you have the recipe for one wild night(mare).
Bring the whole family, some lawn chairs or a blanket and a picnic and join in on the fun.
Shakespeare in the Ravine, fast, funny and FREE!
Our mission is to empower agency and citizenship through the works of William Shakespeare. We challenge our community to answer the question: what does Shakespeare say to me, what do I say with him? Our region has a beautifully unique worldview that is not celebrated often enough. Portrayals of our region rarely express a true Appalachian experience and often focus on negative stereotypes. We want to counteract this narrative by confronting high culture with the agency of Appalachian students: we provide a safe place for Appalachian students to realize their story and tell it using Shakespeare’s text as a tool to contextualize their place in the world.
