Mirth & Matter Presents A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Four Athenians run away to the forest only to have Puck the fairy make two of the lovers fall in love with the same person. The four run through the forest pursuing each other while Puck helps his master play a trick on the fairy queen. In the end, Puck reverses the magic, and the two couples reconcile and marry.

Mirth & Matter Presents Troilus and Cressida

Troilus and Cressida

Trojan prince Troilus falls in love with Cressida, as war rages around them. After vowing to be faithful, Cressida is traded to the Greek camp, where she then agrees to see another man. Troilus witnesses Cressida's unfaithfulness and vows to put more effort into the war. The play ends after further deaths on both sides, and with no resolution in sight.
