About this show

When the light in a forest fades and dims, love's mystery and mischief soon begins…

Piccolo dazzles the imagination on a journey into a world of wits and wiles! The marriage of King Theseus and Queen Hippolyta dishes up more than cake when mortal and enchanted characters clash in misadventures of the heart. Hermia and Helena, both in love with "the wrong men" Lysander and Demetrius, become entangled in a potion-induced folly created by mischievous fairy Puck, confusing the couples even further. Oberon and Titania, fairy royalty, focus their attentions on a hapless troupe of actors, one of whom – Bottom – falls under Puck's spell and becomes Titania's temporary diversion. The hedges of reality and illusion grow wild in William Shakespeare's revealing comedic charade of what people will do for love.
