A musical by Laura Murphy
Based on A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
Director Shaun Rennie
Featuring original songs and an adapted script by Laura Murphy, The Lovers is a fresh and magical pop-infused reimagining of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Oberon and Puck have devoted centuries trying to craft the perfect happy ending. However, as they look out over an increasingly disconnected world where would-be lovers are afraid to ‘catch feels’ and the path to romance is always one swipe away, Oberon fears there will be no more happily-ever-afters.
Until one day, they happen upon four young lovers.
Directed by Shaun Rennie (Rent, Baby Doll) with a superb cast, a live four-piece band and an irresistibly infectious score, The Lovers is a heart-warming and hilarious retelling of Shakespeare’s beloved story that questions our enduring search for the romanticised version of true love we see in the movies.
