Midsummer Night’s Dream
LOVE IS THE MOST POWERFUL MAGIC OF ALL
Love is in the air as Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius and Helena escape into the woods against the wishes of their families. However, the woods have other plans for the young lovers. From Cook Island Māori writer/director Benny Marama comes a multi-lingual adaptation of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the classic story of love, magic and foolishness. With segments in English, Gagana fa’a Sāmoa and Te Reo Māori Kuki Airani, this modern reworking also features a cast primarily made up of Māori and Pasi ka performers from around the Waikato.
