A Midsummer Night's Dream 

By William Shakespeare

Demetrius and Helena

Happy at last

Kissing through the chink
Kissing through the chink

Wall holds it up for them.

The band plays for the Duke

The rock musical of Pyramus and Thisbe

Mod London

The Londoners travel through the rain, revealing the oppressive city atmosphere in Act I

The land of the forest fairies
The land of the forest fairies

Titania sleeps

Lysander loses his way
Lysander loses his way

Not the hero we would expect

The Rude Mechanicals

At rehearsal in the forest

Bottom is transformed
Bottom is transformed

Into an ass

Puck and the fairy

The ever playful Puck plays with Titania's fairy

Set in 1969, following the events of the time and the music of the era, this rock musical adaptation of Shakespeare's classic text explores the world of Mod London as Athens, the woods of Shakespeare's Stratford as the fairies run wild, and the rude mechanicals try to form a rock band to entertain the duke.
