Since 1975, Actors From The London Stage have shared their singular vision to recreate the masterworks of William Shakespeare in the most bare-bones, straightforward way.

Five actors take the stage, with minimal props and costumes, and direct themselves in a performance of a complete Shakespeare play, with each actor portraying multiple roles. The goal: to interpret Shakespeare’s text as a blueprint for a performance — and as a gateway to its wide-ranging, transformative poetry.

Here, the Actors present A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the cherished mythological comedy set in ancient Greece. As part of a week-long residency at Purdue, the company will also engage directly in the classroom with students across the university’s curriculum.
