By William Shakespeare
On the eve of a royal wedding,  a quartet of lovers and a motley group of amateur actors visit a fairy-filled forest. When the worlds of mortals and fairies intersect, expect mischief. Bring a picnic and share an enchanting night of romantic comedy under the stars in the PFI Historic Park, Ellicott City, our festival-style summer theatre home.
