A Midsummer Night’s Dream: The Latest Representation of Shakespeare’s Work

The crowd in Graha Bhakti Budaya Theater of Taman Ismail Marzuki, Jakarta, clapped and roared after tens of BINUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL Simprug students finished the performance of a drama titled A Midsummer Night’s Dream, October 22-23, 2012.

Seven BINUS students in the Literature and Performance class reinterpreted the work of the legendary Sir William Shakespeare. They managed to create a modern, simple and comedic work out of the quite complicated script.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream was written in 1590. The drama tells the love story between four characters in Athens, namely Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius. Hermia and Lysander are not allowed to marry while Demetrius tries to chase Hermia. Meanwhile, Helena is madly in love with Demetrius. The king and queen of fairies also quarrel. And then, the king of fairies use a magic potion to make Demetrius and Lysander fall in love with Helena.

In the performance, they were helped by their juniors who played the characters. There were three shows, which consisted of one show in the first day and two shows in the next day. “We made a drama and an essay which represent the work of Shakespeare,” explained Gupita, the director of the final-project drama.
