As with every Shakespeare play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream has a surface level as well as deeper levels.

Presented by Robin Williams, Ph.D. Robin has been working with Shakespeare for more than four decades and with Shakespeare readers for more than two decades, and has a special interest in digging beneath the surface of the plays.
