Midsummer Night’s Dream
January 14 – 26, 2020
Be as thou wast wont to be; See as thou wast wont to see.
A THEATRE RUSTICLE PRODUCTION
Shakespeare’s iconic A Midsummer Night’s Dream collides with Theatre Rusticle’s imagistic and physically poetic performance style to tell a lusciously dark story about love and a world out of balance. The company’s hallmark physicality bends this timeless fantasy, shattering the dusty myths and offering an intimate new view of lovers, fairies, theatre-makers, and Shakespeare.

Rush Tickets go on sale at noon for that day’s performance and can be purchased until 7:00pm on weekdays and 2:30pm on Sundays, or until they sell out – whichever comes first. For select performances, Rush Tickets are offered as Pay-What-You-Can, which means you pick the price. If cost is a barrier, this is your chance to get an affordable ticket. If you are able to pay more, this is your chance to increase your support for the work on stage and ensure it stays affordable for those who need it.
Rush Tickets are generally only available in-person at our box office, and we recommend getting here early for more popular shows as these tickets can sell fast. However, if getting down here in the middle of the day presents a barrier – accessible transportation, childcare, etc – simply call the box office at 416-975-8555 and we’ll hold up to two Rush Tickets for you that you can purchase when you arrive to see the show.
