A Mid-summer's Nightmare at King Ling College takes inspiration from Shakespeare

 

The Performance Troupe of King Ling College presented their play, The Mid-summer Nightmare, on February 5. All of the actors spent about a month brainstorming ideas. Then, after being inspired by Shakespeare, they planned the plot and wrote the script.

The Mid-summer Nightmare explores the most important themes of Shakespeare's plays, like dramatic irony and a play within a play. These are all challenging skills in playwriting and performing.

Through their play, the performance troupe hoped to show the audience that life isn't always clear or easy, and to teach them to think carefully about this.
