Role Description

Peter Quince: a carpenter and aspiring playwright, leader of the Mechanicals (and, apparently, the Athenian amateur theatrical troupe), patient and caring; kind, shy, and retiring, especially compared and contrasted to his leading actor, Nick Bottom the Weaver, whom he tolerates and on whom he does his best to hold tight the reins, easily flustered or discombobulated; it is his idea to perform a play in honor of Theseus's nuptials, so though self-effacing, not without a Big Dream; does his best to hold together his band of players and in the process, becomes something of a pre-Brechtian theatrical innovator; good language skills; excellent comic instincts; warm and endearing.
