A Caribbean Dream
A re-imagining of William Shakespeare's romantic comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream set in modern day Barbados, This traditional tale takes a twist with the creation of new characters where the mechanicals are re-imagined as fishermen, and Bottom as a black belly sheep, along with Birdman and a changeling boy. Mystery, magic and romance unfold within a beautiful Caribbean landscape and the grounds of Fustic House. Set under a full moon and during the Crop Over festival, Puck is a butler, while Oberon and Titania maintain the house during the day. Chaos and madness unfolds at night, exploring Caribbean folklore and culture. This is a unique and entertaining re-imagination of one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies.
