Reuniting after the worldwide success of their ground-breaking co-production War Horse, England's Bristol Old Vic and South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company are back to create an exciting new take on Shakespeare's magical romantic comedy, focusing on transformation, survival and song. This re-imagining of A Midsummer's Night Dream finds its fantasy in mixing and even interchanging human and puppet characters, not to mention finding several ingenious forms for Puck, as the Bard's enchanted forest comes to life in a whole new way as part of the Kennedy Center's World Stages International Theater Festival.
