August 15th, 2018 - What Fools These Mortals Be
In Episode five, Casye and Elizabeth take on something that is loved and feared by many...Shakespeare.
A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare is one of his more famous comedies. The girls will talk about their multiple experiences with the play. Since they are both experienced actresses, they have both performed various roles. (Casye was Puck. She is literally the little redheaded Fairie from lore. Who else was going to do it? Honestly?)
In Athens, two lovers are torn apart. Hermia and Lysander are deeply in love. Demetrius, the man selected for Hermia by her father, also wants Hermia. Hermia is given a choice. She must either enter a convent, marry Demetrius as her father wishes, or die. Hermia's friend Helena loves Demetrius, but Demetrius still wants Hermia. Hermia and Lysander decide to run away together.
And then mischievous fairies decide get involved....
As if this wasn't complicated enough.
