The Dreamer

Co-Directed and Produced by Kate Mueth & Josh Gladstone

This reimagining of Shakespeare’s beloved play centers on The Dreamer, a girl on the immediate cusp of womanhood. As we gaze through the lens of this modern girl’s psyche, we deep dive into the riches of her yet-to-come-out-of-the-shadows subconscious to explore power, identity, love, transformation, and the intensity of society’s patriarchal impression on young people’s spirits.Shakespeare’s wild and chaotic sleep story presents an unfettered terrain upon which to ponder that which lies in the darkness of our world’s hope- the youth.What awaits The Dreamer when she exits the moonlit forest of her existence to awaken to a new day’s dawning?Dance, multi-genre music and vibrant design illuminate the magic of our girl’s dream and takes her through a bold journey of self discovery and ultimate transformation.This production is made possible in part due to the generosity of The National Endowment for the Arts and Arts Midwest through the grant Shakespeare In American Communities, Charles Weilman and Sylvie del Giudice, Sheri Sandler, Jackie Lowey of Saunders & Associates, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and our in-kind community donors. Without these generous supporters this project would not be possible.

“Magnificent and inspiring work by The NPC!”

“This was the very best Midsummer I’ve ever seen!” 

“Absolute magic!”

“…exquisitely realized and so generously shared.... Thank you... What a spectacular WIN for THEATER and the LIVING SOULS within us all to whom you've called so thrillingly.... "
