Get to the bottom of love.
"The course of true love never did run smooth."
On an enchanted summer's evening, four young lovers find themselves entangled in a bewildering game of lust and longing. In a magical forest where a powerful fairy king and queen are at war, nothing is quite as it seems: mischievous spirits run riot, confusion reigns and love conquers all.
"Surely one of Shakespeare's most delightful comedies,'The Dream' perfectly embodies our season theme of encounters. Mortals, mechanicals and fairies have their lives and passions thoroughly mixed up as they venture 'into the woods': a magical, mysterious place of mayhem and excitement!
We've gathered together some of New Zealand's finest comic talent for this evening of midsummer madness." - Colin
