UF English grad directs “A Midsummer Night's Dream”

This weekend will be the last chance to see the Shakespearian comedy "A Midsummer Night's Dream," after a month-long run.

Set in Ancient Greece, the play is filled with love, dreams and fairy tales, said the play's director Walton Wood.

This will be the first time the UF English graduate student will direct a play outside of UF's student theater.

Drew Blair, who will play Puck, a henchman, in the 8 p.m. performances, graduated from UF with a degree in theater in 2005.

Puck causes mischeif between the lovers' situations in the show, Blair said.

While multiple story lines weave throughout the play, Blair said the theme of love is prevalent throughout.

"No matter what the obstacle, true love will always persevere," Blair said.

The performances will be held at the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre, 619 South Main St., Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

The doors will open at 7:30 p.m., and tickets will be $10 for the general audience and $8 for students and educators.
