A Midsummer Night's Zoom
The New Swan is back -- with a Zoom performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
This special live streaming production opens in a place called Zoomland before moving to the forest of your dreams.
"A Midsummer Night's Zoom" is directed by Eli Simon and features New Swan actors from our 2018 production, as well as some sparkling new New Swan talent. It has been re-envisioned for the medium of Zoom acting and live streaming.
We are dividing the play into halves, with interactive discussions led by Julia Lupton following each evening's performance. All events will stream from the New Swan Shakespeare Center YouTube channel.
