About This Activity

The theatre has always been about transgressing and exploding gender norms, and nobody does that better than William Shakespeare. In this class, students will engage with A Midsummer Night’s Dream through an LGBTQIA2S+ lens. What might a queer reimagining look like for the central love stories? How can we relate to themes of forbidden love, or unrequited passion, or transformation, and metamorphosis? And, hey, do fairies even have genders? We’ll work together to explore, reimagine, and reinterpret Midsummer, and along the way, we’ll learn some theatre history and discuss how our understanding of gender, on the stage and off it, has evolved over the centuries. We will stage a final performance at the end of the semester. Teaching Artist: Celia Taylor
