MD Theatre Guide extols "Artful visuals, strong acting, pleasant tunes, and hearty laughter are all waiting to be found somewhere deep within woods of Galway in 'An Irish Twist on A Midsummer Nights Dream.'

BroadwayWorld.com raves "Quotidian Theatre Company's charming spin on Shakespeare reminds theater-goers exactly why we enjoy revisiting and re-experiencing old favourites, and helps us see 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' through fresh and delighted eyes."

Shakespeare's enchanted woods replete with mischievous faeries, quarreling lovers, and ridiculous rude mechanicals are transported to Regency Ireland. LIVE traditional Irish music and dance.

PLEASE NOTE! Due to renovations at the Writers Center (QTCs home), an Irish Twist on "A Midsummer Night's Dream" will be performed at the Randolph Road Theater, 4010 Randolph Road, Silver Spring, MD 20902.

Setting

1817. Tuam, Galway, Ireland. The great hall and woods beyond the family estate of the widowed Lady Montbrook, her daughter, Margaret, and her orphaned niece, Aveline.

Montbrook Family History

The Montbrooks are among the numerous English expatriates awarded land in Ireland, where the late Lord Montbrook moved with his family in the late 1700s. His sister, Aveline's mother, was disowned by the Montbrook family after she fell in love and eloped with an Irishman, who was later killed in the Irish rebellion of 1798. When her mother died, the young Aveline went to live with Margaret and Lady Montbrook on their estate. There, Aveline fell in love and had a mostly secret affair with Lord Gregroy, the son of the Montbrooks wealthy neighbors. Lady Montbrook, having fallen on hard times due to her tenant farmers inability to pay their rent, is now eager to have her only daughter, Margaret, marry the wealthy Lord Gregory, whose parents also support the union.
