Shakespeare on the porch

Last night in the Near North side of Indianapolis there was a little culture on New Jersey street. With full wine glasses and plates of cheese and grapes we read through A Midsummer's Night Dream. I wasn't sure what to expect when I got the invitation but it was a lot of fun. From the Hillbilly Puck to the suicidal Hermia everyone added their own little touch to their characters. Bottom was played flawlessly by Kipp and even the small part of Fairy stood out with the signing of Elizabeth. I read the role of Lysander and in less then 3 hours we had finished the play. It was a lot of fun and such a beautiful night on the front porch.
