What Fools These Mortals Be. This is a two-person adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Experience the passion, energy and imagination of their original adaptation of Shakespeare’s magical tale of lovers, fairies and fools.
At Knighthorse, the mission is simple: to make Shakespeare cool again. They get him off the page and onto the stage where he belongs. A Knighthorse stage has no boundaries, no dimensions, no limits. Actor and audience occupy the same space. They touch you, talk to you, and sit down next to you.
Every Knighthorse production is a work of art and the audience is an essential part of bringing it to life. The energy of the audience and a willingness to play are absolutely vital to the success of each production. There are minimal sets and minimal props, the “magic” of each production is wholly dependent upon the supremacy of Shakespeare’s language and the vast, untapped potential of the combined imaginations of the audience and the actors.
