Director

Darcy J. Knopp will return as director of this summer’s production. This is Darcy’s fourth time directing for Bard in the Valley including 2016s Taming of the Shrew and previous productions Julius Caesar and Comedy of Errors. A graduate of the UFV Theatre Program in 2008, Darcy is an actor, director, and playwright whose most recent credits include When Life Gives You Lemon Waters and Knight of Fools at the 2018 Siloam Festival, as well as, Canadian Content and Domestic Misconduct at the 2017 Dimes for Drama and Rickrack Festival.

The Concept

The overall concept for this Midsummer Night’s Dream would be to focus on the haunted forest. This is the domain of the faerie folk. This is the place where they twist and warp reality. They create apparitions and visions to bewitch the intruders. The lovers are trespassing on faerie turf and must pay the penalty. They become the unwilling entertainment for the silly games of the Faerie Folk. It is really up to the likes of Oberon, Titania, and especially Puck, whether or not Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius make it out of the forest in one piece. We hope to bring a spooky twisted “Dream” to the stage summer 2019.
