Phoenix Theatre and Annex
The Ninjaz Of Drama's presentation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream offers a unique spin on the famous Four Lovers and the “Rude Mechanicals” who stumble upon them in Shakespeare’s forest of the mind. Instead of the traditional four young, impetuous people, the two pairs of lovers will be shown as characters in middle age. As they enter the Faerie forest they are beset with passions not felt in years, thanks to the interference of faerie King Oberon and the mischievous Puck. In another twist, most of the low-life Mechanicals are played by Women. All the cast will be in modern dress.
The Ninjaz’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream runs for nine performances, December 14-30 at the Phoenix Theatre, 414 Mason Street, Suite 601. In San Francisco 94102. The Phoenix Theatre is Located in the historic Theatre District next to Union Square and close to the Powell St BART Station and SF Muni.
