Midsommer Flight
July 11 – August 30, 2015
Presented outdoors at Touhy Park, Schreiber Park, Gross Park, & Lincoln Park


“The entire ensemble cast is terrific…. Sumptuous costumes… thrilling sword fighting…. Midsommer Flight has brought us a fresh, vivid look at a Shakespeare classic.”
Katy Walsh, The Fourth Walsh, 08.20.2015

“…the acting was incredible all around… The acting, the pace, the fight choreography, even the fact that this is an outdoor production, added to the flavor of the show…. I really recommend this show!”
Wesley Whitaker, The Game Show Show, 08.11.15 episode

“Whether a Shakespeare fan or just looking for a free event in the Chicago area, a night out to see the cast of Midsommer Flight’s performance of Macbeth is a must.”
Giovanna Zavell, Splash Magazine, 08.07.2015

“This is a very sophisticated acting troupe…. don’t be fooled by their humility and the simplicity of their setting. There’s excellent use of the simple acting space, graceful transitions between scenes, sensitive abridgement of the text, insightful and imaginative direction, and fine acting (including good projection and articulation) throughout… Bravo.”
Jonathan, Gross Park audience member and Goldstar reviewer, 08.16.2015
