A few days into planning and recording our audio drama, director Daniel Mesta had the thought to add another layer to this production of Shakespeare’s classic “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.

Shakespeare and I have always had a bit of a difficult relationship. From reading his plays in my high school English class to seeing a couple performances at Shakespeare’s Globe in London on a study abroad with my university it’s been a long and bumpy road. Much like my complicated relationship with the Bard himself, many of the characters in his plays have complicated relationships.
