I dont know a lot about too much of anything. Never did really used to think I did, but I didnt.
A Midsummer Nights Dream, the classic Shakespearean tale of intricate sylvan misadventures, provides the inspiration for this contemporary retelling, shaped with a more modern sensibility.
Stalled party plans, religious services, romance, and a midlife crisis lead earnest people into a forest for escape, blessings, notice, and solace. Incarnate deities take too much interest in the seekers lives for no better reason than the mismanagement of their own affairs and instigate the unintentional but escalating deterioration of matters for the bewildered mortals. Theres no tree too tall, or insect so small, that cant add more nonsense to the foolishness transpiring.
These are mysterious circumstances for people who didnt know that miracles are real, are as old as the universe, and will continue in some form or another, somewhere or another, until the end of time.
