In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, young lovers Lysander and Hermia defy the Duke by eloping to his aunt’s house in the woods. But who is this law-snubbing, free-loving aunty and what is she doing in the bush? And what happens when the Athenian law comes knocking at her door?
From Trick of the Light (The Bookbinder, The Griegol) and in the tradition of Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, comes a riotous reworking of Shakespeare’s play that takes a cannon to the canon. There will be sword fights. There will be Tim Tams. You’re not in Athens now, Dr. Ropata.
