A Midsummer Night's Dream
Young Actors in TrainingStreaming Video - 2011
Shakespeare's comedic tale of mischief and enchantment is, in a sense, the prototype of today's giddy big-screen romances. At any rate, that is one comparison to emerge from a handful of young actors invited to the Globe Theatre to rehearse and perform Midsummer's Act III, Scene 2. This program documents their work and the discussion that follows, giving viewers a front-row seat at their physical, emotional, and intellectual processes. There are few better ways to study Shakespeare's magical tale, especially this portion of it, in which Helena and Hermia squabble over a boy.
