A Midsummer Night’s Dream

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Stieren Guest Artist Nona Shepphard
The well-known comedy follows four Athenian lovers as they lose themselves in a wood of mischievous fairies, rustic players and misfired love potions.  Everyone pursues each other on the eve of midsummer-a night when anything can happen. Trinity’s production relies on its actors to create the world of the play using physicality, music, and imagination. “I don’t want to tell the audience what to think,” says Nona Shepphard. “The theatre can create spectacle and magic with practically nothing.”

Randy-inspiration from Shakespeare’s dog talk or why I keep writing

      Ron Rosenbaum in THE SHAKESPEARE WAR touches on so much of what I want to achieve as a writer: it has more to do with me than Shakespeare.   As a writer, I’m looking for unexpected creative impulses.   I don’t always find them, as I’m writing.   But I live for those surprises that come without “hunting for words,” bursts of creativity, that add “exhilaration” to my writing” (quotes from Rosenbaum); and now, as I’ve mature I seek the receptive space, the sense of freedom and self, that allows me to get there.

       But I can’t escape my age.   It gives me a sense of urgency; and my thoughts have turned to creating as much as I can or doing as much as I can with the time I have left.   I haven’t always been as productive as I could’ve been.   I have never planned…I say this was generally true, as I address the fact that I don’t think I have reached my full potential or completely polished or finished anything.   But everyday, after a routine of eating, reading, exercising, taking my medicine and watching the news, I write something, but generally it is not filled with the “kind of allegory of the experience, the exhilaration, the pure pleasure” that Rosenbaum found in “the dog talk” of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.

    Good night, Randy Ford
