In this new adaption of Shakespeare’s classic comedy there’s a twist: Athenian law does not permit gay marriage. Never fear, with the help of the King and Queen of the Fairies, their mischievous servant Puck, and a band of plucky amateur thespians, the fates of two pairs of same-sex lovers take a hilarious course of misplaced affection, and we learn that true love doesn’t necessarily have to be only a dream.
