Directed by Shakirah Bourne. Produced by Melissa Simmonds and Lynette Eastmond. Barbados, 2016. Shakespeare’s romantic comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream is re-set in Barbados and brought into the 21st Century where Theseus and Hippolyta are returning nationals, come home to be married during Crop Over. The island’s history, folklore, culture and landscape lend themselves wonderfully to the mysticism and chaos that ensue.
