Shakespeare's iconic play collides with Theatre Rusticle's imagistic and physically poetic performance style to tell a lusciously dark story about love and a world out of balance. The company's hallmark physicality bends this fantasy about a quartet of lovers, a troupe of actors and the supernatural world, shattering the dusty myths of Shakespeare and offering and intimate, new view of dreams, visions and love.

“…seldom has there been anything as elegant and imaginative as this movement-based piece from the superb Theatre Rusticle”.

- Glenn Sumi, Now Magazine

“Theatre Rusticle’s version was infused with so much energy and brightness. It gave me life, not only that night, but in the time since; I often catch glimmers of the final scene on the edges of my mind, and I feel calm"

- May Antaki, Intermission Magazine
