Hedgerow's production of this beloved Shakespeare play opens May 12th, and this line from the first scene sets the stage for all of the hilarious events that follow -- "The course of true love never did run smooth," 

Which is not surprising given the fact that Shakespeare penned his lovers a deluge of duels, deception, and devious fairy interventions!

In truth, the road to love is bumpy for everybody.  But few of us have had to suffer the comic antics of 'Puck' - one of Shakespeare's most famous characters who is priceless in Hedgerow's production opening May 12th.  Puck is a fairy with a magic bag of tricks, most of which backfire in deliciously funny ways.  

In fact, the term a Puckish sense of humor was likely derived from this playful, mischievous character.

The play centers around the coming marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta...to stop the nuptials, the Fairy King orders Puck to create a love potion to derail the lovers. What could possibly go wrong?! 

Everything!...and along with the main plot, a second pair of lovers is 'pranked' by Puck.  You'll share the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are also controlled and manipulated by the fairies.  Adapted and directed by Aaron Cromie
