Hermia is given a choice: marry Demetrius, be put to death or be locked away in a convent. She chooses death. Everyone else, however, chooses for her: the nunnery. This contemporary take on a mythical world asks: what would Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer’ characters do if there were no fairies accidentally solving all their problems? In a world where all the women of Athens are presented with only three options: marriage, death or the nunnery, lines of power, love and principle are more blurred than wrote. And to find the answer, Pyramus and Thisbe, Hermia and Lysander, Hermia’s dad, Helena and Demetrius, Theseus and Hippolyta… and Phaedra, must wade through twenty years of heartache, isolation and hijinks to discover, for themselves, the price of their own hearts, the burden of their actions and the imprint of their legacies.
