by William Shakespeare, directed by Sheila Morgan and Gustavo Alonso
When tempers flare and hearts beat wild there is no place for actions mild. A love quarrel between the Fairy King, Oberon and his Queen, Titania, sends a rippling affect through the world at large and especially the court of Athens, where its conservative laws come between the true love of Hermia and Lysander. When the impetuous youth escape the forest, followed by the lovesick Helena and rival Demetrious, they come upon a Burning Man type festival, triggering a dream like coming of age. The sexy, furry, neon clad fairies, led by the mischievous Puck, spin their magic on the unsuspecting humans and with the help of a famous purple flower, grant them the gift of Radical Self-Expression.
