A Midsummer Night’s Dream always was something of a bizarre play, but had a certain charm. I was quite impressed when this evening’s re-imagining managed to squash that charm completely. I gave it one more chance after:
Queen of the Fairies: My name’s Titania
Bottom: [looks down] I’m not surprised
but then Oberon said:
Is Puck short for Puck-up by any chance? Get anything else wrong and I’ll stick this midsummer night’s dream up where the moon don’t shine
and that was enough for me. Not my style of humour 🙁 Such a shame, when Much Ado About Nothing was so good a few weeks back.
