""I don't know a lot about too much of anything. Never did really ... used to think I did, but I didn't.""
"A Midsummer Night's 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. There's no tree too tall, or insect so small, that can't add more nonsense to the foolishness transpiring
These are mysterious circumstances for people who didn't 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.
