​“Lord, what fools these mortals be!” Misplaced magic makes mayhem when four young lovers run away from their parents to the forest where powerful fairies are at war – and really bad actors are at work. All of this makes great play for us! With fun and accessible poetry, Shakespeare is for everyone – no experience necessary! ​Run away with us as we reconnect, make new friends, and rediscover our own magic outdoors.

“Theatrical genius that deserves wide exposure to a new generation….Find your way in, live among its stories and reboot your life” – Chicago Tribune 

“Perfect theatrical storytelling that never stumbles or strikes a false note.” – Chicago Reader 

“Cheerfully ingenious” – New York Times 

Prepare to be transformed. Tony Award-winning Mary Zimmerman’s smash hit Metamorphoses is a play of such grace and beauty that the memory of it lingers long after the lights have gone down. All theatrical elements are at work to conjure the force of Ovid’s myths into gorgeous imagery, provocative moments and breathtaking storytelling. Experience magic and enchantment, bawdy humor and deep sincerity, told in a provocative mix of both contemporary and classic styles.
