Extracts from this document...


A Midsummer night's dream keeps us waiting On February 27, 2009, holy trinity school performed a Midsummer Night's Dream in the school theater. The play, directed by Ms.Greenway, Mrs. Thomson, and Mrs.Ganley presents a comedy set in the sixties according to the similarities of the themes of the play and the time period. The play takes place in Athens, starring the four lovers Hermia and Lysander, and Helena and Demetrius.

We leave satisfied with learning much more about the play.
