A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
Is it about fairies and pixies and the course of true love not running smoothly?
Or is it about getting off your face – so off your face that you end up f**king a donkey… ?
Forget the romantic fairytale, Loose Canon is ripping A Midsummer Night’s Dream to shreds, exposing a sordid nightmare of lust, rejection, manipulation and self-denial – a darkly comic re-imaging of Shakespeare’s classic tale for the 21st Century.
There will be a post show discussion with director Jason Byrne following the performance on Tuesday 7 June.
Loose Canon is part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.
