The couples in Athens just can’t catch a break, have you noticed that? Everyone is trying to tell them how to be and who to love: the government, their parents, themselves, crazy woodland fairies. It’s a lot like the society we live in today where lovers, especially in the LGBTQIA+ community, just can’t do their own thing without everyone trying getting up in their business.

TSP’s cast and production team, with a majority representing the LGBTQIA+ community (and featuring Hermia and Lysander as a lesbian couple and a couple of non-binary fairies), will dive deep into this messy web of tyranny and prejudice to expose it for how silly it really is.

Starring Laura Clare Browne, Erin Cronican, Ellinor DiLorenzo, William Ketter, Dan Mack, Jon L Peacock, Brandon Walker, and Weronika Helena Wozniak, this very fluid production is directed by TSP's Co-Artistic Directors and NYIT Award Nominees Brandon Walker and Erin Cronican. Staged Managed by Shannon K Formas.

These readings are being presented as a benefit for the Ali Forney Center (, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting LGBTQ youths from the harms of homelessness and empowering them with the tools needed to live independently. Proceeds from tickets (starting at $10) will be donated directly to AFC.
