Photo Gallery: An Outdoor Production of A Midsummer Night's Dream

Performances of William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" were offered in June at the Raleigh Rose Garden. Viewing from blankets and folding chairs, the 90-person crowd was treated to a stageless show, surrounded by roses in full bloom. Weaving in and out of planted rows, actors had to hide "off stage" in the florals. Co-produced by Seed Art Share and the Raleigh Little Theatre, the 90-minute play is the first to be performed in the garden since about the 1970's.
