Performance Dates

BST pairs the well­-loved comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream with the rarely produced The Two Noble Kinsmen to interrogate to what lengths we will go for love and what happens to those who get left behind. Though Midsummer was written early in Shakespeare’s career and Kinsmen was a much later collaboration with Fletcher, both stories are set in the realm of Theseus, who, days before his marriage to Hippolyta, must decide how to manage two young men rivaling for the attentions of one woman.

BST Artistic Director Charlene V. Smith returns to the director’s chair for Kinsmen. She previously directed BST’s Richard III, a production touted for its “clarity of vision and superb talent.”
