Hermia is promised as a wife by her father Demetrius. If she refuses, she faces death. But Hermia protests: she loves Lysander and he loves her too. And after all, Demetrius was courting someone else until recently: Helena, who is still fighting for his favor. Meanwhile, in the forest, the fairy king Oberon is wrestling with his wife Titania, a troupe of craftsmen is trying to rehearse a play and, in an attempt to conjure up the solution to everything, Puck instigates (bad) luck even further.

Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is not just a linguistically witty confusion and an enchanted tale about power. The play also contains motifs, actions and statements that polarize current debates in our society.

Director Jan Friedrich returns to the Schauburg after “Spring Awakening” and “The Metamorphosis” and, with this production, poses the question of “how” in the current mindfulness debate. Which discourses are we conducting and which should we be conducting? And how does art relate to all of this? What is allowed on the theater stage, what should, what must and what must not?
