The last fairy lurks in a dying forest. A ragtag crew of office drones tries to put on a play. Tiltyard's Midsummer weaves together text from every one of Shakespeare's plays to create a new story: a deep, dark, adventurous comedy, filled with magical possessions, crazed love triangles, and midnight mayhem. A radical Shakespearean remix for an era of ecological crisis, Midsummer is an opportunity to reawaken our faith, and to ask ourselves the moment’s all-important question: In a heartsick, broken, wintery world, how do we imagine a future?
