The woods are open. It’s business as usual. Oberon’s on the door. Titania rules the floor. The mechanicals get ready for their set out the back and besotted couples seek clandestine corners – inebriated with love & flowers™.
Hermia and Lysander are in love (for now). They decide to run away together and there's only one place they can meet. But when Helena, Hermia's bff (for now) puts d8s before m8s and tells the jealous Demetrius of the lovers' plan, the night descends into a chaotic dance of pursuit & deceit. What’s more, as the late night dwellers of the woods emerge from the haze, they too find themselves tangled in this messy love octagon.
This reimagined, pleather-covered story about love, trust, and losing your mind is Shakespeare ripped into the present day. After all, 'the course of true love never did run smooth’.
