A new musical by Laura Murphy
Based on A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
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.
