Shakespeare Dallas is excited to bring back an opportunity to meet and discuss the plays being performed on our stages in a fun and casual setting.

THE TEMPEST

Robbed of his position, power, and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this is no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm, he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake, they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

On a midsummer's night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forrest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding fairy king and queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince, and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker, Puck, is on hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love, and dreams ensue in Shakespeare's most beguiling comedy.
