Director's Note

Come away, O, human child!
To the woods and waters wild,
With a fairy hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than
you can understand.
-W.B. Yeats

Our wounded world is indeed full of weeping right now. So much so that I sometimes wonder what we as theatre artists are supposed to do…what do we have to say?…what do we have to offer?…can we enlighten?…can we help to heal? I would like to think that we have much to give.

Shakespeare is revered for his understanding of the human animal and it seems at any stage of humanity's often painful evolution his work offers wisdom and insight and sometimes even comfort. Bringing this remarkable play about love and imagination to light feels right. If ever we have needed to be reminded of love and the power to imagine, to "envision" a better world, it is now.

So thank you for coming with us…To the woods and waters wild, with a fairy hand in hand…and may our production, as Oberon himself says, through the house give glimmering light.
