 Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is a wild tale filled with magic, trickery, star-crossed lovers, and, of course, comedy. When four Athenian’s venture into the woods in pursuit of their own desires, they fall victim to tricks from the mischievous fairy Puck, causing love triangles and other trouble. Meanwhile, Puck helps his master play a trick on the fairy queen. Imaginable chaos ensues. The ISU cast includes a talented 25 students, ranging from freshman to seniors.
