Welcome to the forest. A surreal world of fairies, spells, incantations, magic – disorder made right by the mischief of the night.
When four young lovers escape to the woods, they find themselves embroiled in a battle of wills between the fairy king and queen. Nearby, a group of rude mechanicals are rehearsing for a performance at the wedding of Duke Theseus.
When everyone’s paths cross, they become entangled in a heady, unpredictable chaos: one that threatens to tear the fair kingdom apart.
Blending cabaret, drag, spoken word, music and movement with Shakespeare’s original words, and a new text devised by Patrick Cash and the company, this radically interpreted Dream offers a provocative, darkly comedic meditation on love and relationships in the 21st century.
The first production from Arcola’s newest community performance company is back for Christmas.
