An in-depth look at A Midsummer Night's Dream, particularly the patriarchal and colonialist themes it holds. Dream is often thought of as one of Shakespeare's "light" works, full of comedy and fairies...but, it holds deep questions for those who know how to look!
Great for high school students, home-schooling or un-schooling. Also good for directors or dramaturgs, or those interested in those activities!
