"...the second act is sidesplittingly funny, double in your chair laughing funny." mooneyontheatre.com
“What they achieve is a rollicking, laugh-out-loud funny version of the play that exploits the sly humour in Shakespeare’s spoof of the acting world and the mix of magic, make-believe and nonsense that is A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” susanwalkerartsblog.com
"An immensely entertaining production that allows Shakespeare's delightful comedy to embrace the blend of play and deception so crucial to a narrative dependent upon love's complicated equations and the warring powers that unfold." batemanreviews.blogspot.ca
"Enchanting from start to finish...beautiful theatre magic moments." shakespearestudying.wordpress.com
"A delightfully entertaining escape from the brutal winter weather into a different kind of natural disorder, and while fairly brief (running time is 2 hours), is rarely tedious." myentertainmentworld.ca
"Beautiful things come in small boxes ... that’s the best way to describe A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Everything comes together for a delightful couple of hours of vintage Shakespeare." jameskarasreveiws.blogspot.ca
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
ABOUT THE CHEKHOV COLLECTIVE DATES AND TICKETS
Considered Shakespeare's most magical and inventive play, this intimate production explores love in all its complications and contradictions.
On a midsummer’s night, young lovers and workmen plunge into a forest where spirits abound.

It's a world turned upside down where nothing is what it seems.
