WORLD PREMIERE Located just outside of Manhattan, the Lillian Booth Actors Home provides a most resonant setting for the staging of a classic play in which nothing is what it seems. Seeking ways to engage their residents, administrators bring in young professional Broadway directors to shepherd the charismatic retired performers through A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Contending not only with Shakespeare but with the physical and mental challenges of old age—as well as some outsized personalities—will this over-80s ensemble do the Bard justice?
The Directors will be in attendance for both screenings.
