Midsommer Flight produces high quality, accessible performances of Shakespeare’s plays in Chicago communities.
Its vision is to create Shared Joy: the shared experience of a laugh, a gasp, or a cathartic cry; of an event that brings people together in community. This connection is the joy. It has the power to remind us of our shared humanity. Our ordinary, extraordinary humanity. Our belonging. The company achieves Shared Joy through Flights of Fancy: journeys through the imagination, which it takes through the plays of William Shakespeare.
Since inception, Midsommer Flight has envisioned local residents, families, Shakespeare lovers, and those new to his work all to come together to experience the excitement and adventure of Shakespeare’s gorgeous language and timeless stories.
