This imaginative, engaging Shakespearean play appears in two very different adaptations this fall.
It is the first week at Camp Athens, an overnight camp in the beautiful woods of northeast Connecticut. As is often the case with campers, love triangles, purposeful disobedience of authority, and the allure of independence runs high. What these campers do not know is that their summer excitement has awakened a parallel world of fairies. This ethereal world is also driven by summer dreams and the intoxication of overnight camp. A group of impish youth discovers that a deep-seeded rivalry between their Fairy King and Queen threatens the balance of their community. When chaos tempts the most mischievous in the fairy land, Camp Athens and the fairy world collide.
