Playwrights’ Theatre of East Hampton, founded in 1992 by Mitzi and Perry Pazer and now revived with their blessings at LTV Studios by producer Josh Gladstone, will partner with The Neo-Political Cowgirls to present “The Dreamer (A Midsummer Night’s Dream As Seen Through The Eyes Of A Young Girl)” for three fully-staged performances at LTV’s Studio 3 theater from Wednesday, October 25 through Friday, October 27 at 7PM.
Previously performed Off Broadway at HERE Arts Center this past Spring and outdoors at LongHouse Reserve in August, ‘The Dreamer” makes a special encore return to the East End supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts administered by Arts Midwest in support of their Shakespeare in American Communities program. In addition to LTV, “The Dreamer” will tour area schools for its week of residence, including performances for Bridgehampton, Ross School, East Hampton Middle School, Pierson and Wainscott schools.
This unique reimagining of Shakespeare’s beloved, romantic comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is co-directed by Kate Mueth, Artistic Director or The Neo-Political Cowgirls along with her husband Josh Gladstone, LTV’s Creative Director, and centers on a young girl dreamer coming of age in a world of turmoil. The Neo-Political Cowgirls once again take a classic text and put the pen boldly into the hand of our modern audience.
