The beloved, nationally acclaimed SHAKESPEARE AT THE RUINS collaboration between Four County Players and Barboursville Vineyards returns — after 13 years — for a special one-time production. Performances will be on-site in the beautiful Barboursville Vineyards, at the historic ruins of Governor James Barbour’s mansion, designed by Thomas Jefferson and destroyed by fire on Christmas Day, 1884. ABOUT MIDSUMMER: On a midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy. (Blurb from Royal Shakespeare Company)
