A Midsummer Night’s Dream
With Doug Bowen-Flynn

When: May 11th, 2017
Time: 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Where: I Am Books, 189 North Street, Boston

Do you like Shakespeare, but sometimes wish you had a viewing guide? Want to understand the play better as you watch it, and to join fellow adults for a fun evening of catered snacks and Shakespearean insight? Join NEMPAC for its ongoing lecture series on Shakespearean plays being performed in Boston!  You will enjoy refreshments and camraderie with fellow theatre goers while Board member Doug Bowen-Flynn provides insights about A Midsummer Night’s Dream, soon to be performed in Boston by Actors’ Shakespeare Project from May 10 – June 4, Boston’s professional Shakespearean theatre company.

About A Midsummer Nights Dream: “The course of true love never did run smooth.” Dashed expectations force flummoxed lovers into the mystical wilderness where enchantment and confusion await, all for our gleeful benefit. “Let me play the lion too. I will roar that I will do any man’s heart good to hear me.” – Actors Shakespeare Project

Appetizers will be catered by Manda & Me



Doug brought Shakespeare to life for me! Having the historical context made a big difference to my understanding of the language, which I can find mysterious. Doug’s love of Shakespeare makes me want to give it another try – my last real exposure to Shakespeare was 25 years ago. 
Bethany Daily, audience member from 50 Shades of Shakespeare Event in May 2015.

Doug put on a hilarious, interactive show featuring Shakespeare and exploring his more *ahem* personal themes. He touched on bits of history and motivation  that informed both seasoned and newbie Shakespeare fans. I look forward to having another drink with Doug and going deeper into the bawdy Bard.
-Jennifer McGivern, member and supporter of NEMPAC

Doug makes Shakespeare so much fun to hear, see and learn.
-Andrea Waldstein, NEMPAC Board Member and Arthur Waldstein, supporter and friend of NEMPAC



led by Doug Bowen-Flynn

Did you enjoy last year’s 50 Shades of Shakespeare at the Improv Asylum? Come join NEMPAC at Café Paradiso for two evenings of Shakespearean camaraderie, libations, and fun as our own Doug Bowen-Flynn gives a brief overview of two upcoming Shakespeare productions in two separate workshops and entertains questions in advance of going to see the shows! Fee to participate include a beverage of your choice from Cafe Paradiso and a splendid, fun evening with friends and Mr. Bowen-Flynn!

The Winter’s Tale, November 29, 2015, 3PM: In a perfect tale of winter loss and spring redemption, Shakespeare weaves elements of his own life into a tragic, endearing, and poignant story of our human foibles, the choices we make, and their life-altering consequences. Actor’s Shakespeare Project will be performing the show from Dec. 10-Jan. 3. Enrollment Fee: $30. Registration Deadline, Monday Nov 23rd 2015.

Richard II, March 6th 2016, 3PM: What does it mean to be a king? Does a bad monarch still retain the right to rule? Who is entitled to dethrone him? What are the consequences to the people? What are the long-term implications of misrule and political upheaval? All of these issues, as relevant today as they were four hundred years ago, Shakespeare explores in this history—the first in the Plantagenet series that tracks the course of British monarchy from Richard II through the end of the Hundred Years War, the War of the Roses, and the reign of Richard III. Actor’s Shakespeare Project will be performing the show from February 17-March 13.
Enrollment Fee: $30. Registration Deadline, Monday Feb 15th 2016.
