A Midsummer Night's Dream

Wilder Mott, Casey
One of Shakespeare’s most beloved creations, this frolicking tale of lovesick young aristocrats, energetic but inept rustics, and mischievous woodland spirits is a staple of stage and screen. In the past, filmed adaptions have emphasized the play’s traditional, Elizabethan qualities. This production however is a fresh and stylish reinvention that takes an entirely different approach. The story takes place in present day Hollywood - a place where glamorous stars, commanding moguls, starving artists and vaulting pretenders all vie to get ahead. In the tradition of Baz Luhrmann’s rapturous re-imagining of Romeo + Juliet, this modern vision breathes new life into a classic tale. Combined with a cast of established and emerging stars, as well as a pulsing original soundtrack, the film will appeal to ardent fans of the Bard as well as audiences discovering Shakespeare for the first time. "Awake the pert and nimble spirit of mirth and indulge in a film I feel certain Shakespeare himself would enjoy." - Bradley Gibson, Film Threat
