“The course of true love never did run smooth.”

The line, from William Shakespeare’s heralded A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is the perfect hint of foreboding and fun that follows throughout his popular five-act play.

FairyWorlds! breathes new life into the tale of three interwoven love stories. Produced by Southwest Shakespeare Company under the artistic direction of Jared Sakren, the classic comedy takes the stage in intricate costumes and light displays befitting of fairies Oberon, Titania, and Puck. Even those who skipped the CliffsNotes can follow along -- or, at the very least, indulge in the on-site full cash bar.

Weekend performances (Thursdays through Sundays) of the 90-minute show run through Sunday, June 1.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with an 8 p.m. showtime on Saturday, May 17, at the Desert Botanical Garden, 1201 North Galvin Parkway. Tickets are $40 to $55 per person. Visit or for details and ticket reservations.

Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: May 15. Continues through June 1, 2014
