Message from Director
A Midsummer Nights Dream is a wander through the most magical parts of Shakespeares brain. It opens a window to the expansive imagination of a writer who shaped the way we tell and retell stories today. The first Shakespearean play I was ever involved in was Comedy of Errors with Melbourne Shakespeare Company in 2017. Under Jen’s direction, my eyes were opened to a world of wit, passion and hilarity that I never knew existed. This production ignited a life-long love for Will’s words, leading me down the path to directing myself. It is my dream to direct Shakespeares plays so starting with Midsummer for the Melbourne Shakespeare Company feels apt.
