“a passion and depth that is rarely, if ever, uncovered in a full production of the Dream” -The Stage
Living forever’s not easy nowadays – if you’re a fairy. The forests are diminishing and humans are so distracting…
Moon Fool is an inventive re-imagining of Shakespeare’s well-loved play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In this engaging, funny and visually striking production, Titania, Oberon and Puck play out events from their past, hosting nightly revels in their attempt to woo audiences off the path and back into the woods. Combining original music and playful movement, Moon Fool is the fairies’ tale with an amplified twist.
Moon Fool is a new production produced by Trestle and created by emerging company Moon Fool.
