Renaissance drama meets Generation Z in the reimagined A Midsummer Night’s Dream giving credence to Ben Jonson’s claim that Shakespeare was “not of an age but for all time.” Adapted and directed by Johan Anker and Laine Butler, the creative team behind the critically acclaimed Afro-Punk Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is set in a South African urban plastic jungle reflecting both the attitudes and the materials of the 21st century. In a world that has become plastic and fake, just for a moment this play gives us a chance to find our imagination again and to dream..
