Two worlds collide in this lively Shakespeare comedy: the world of humans and the world of immortal fairies. In the woods, the fairies baffle the humans (and each other) at every turn, and what’s mere play for the immortals feels very real for those like us. Topics to discuss include love, (im)mortality, cultural collision, desire, the theater, ambition. We’ll look at some paintings and films inspired by the play. There’ll be an introductory class and then five more, one for each act. Come and laugh! No experience necessary
