Summer Vacation to Michaelmas Week 0
‘swift as a shadow, short as any dream;
the jaws of darkness do devour it up’
the ~woods is open. it’s business as usual. oberon’s on the door. titania rules the floor. the mechanicals get ready for their set out the back and besotted couples seek clandestine corners - inebriated with love & flowers™. but solace sought here is seldom found. and anyway what happens in the ~woods stays in the ~woods.
hermia & lysander are in love (for now). they decide to run away together and there's only one place they can meet. but when helena, hermia's bff (for now) puts d8s before m8s and tells the jealous demetrius of the lovers' plan, the night descends into a chaotic dance of pursuit & deceit. soon the late night dwellers of the ~woods emerge from the haze only to find they themselves are tangled in this messy love octagon.
this reimagined, pleather-covered story about love, trust, and losing your mind is shakespeare ripped into the present day. after all, 'the course of true love never did run smooth'.
