Portland Actors Ensemble has been producing Shakespeare-in-the-Parks productions in Portland for 45 years with the mission of providing financially accessible classical theater in a non-traditional environment. A Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1590 and 1596.
