A Caribbean Dream is a re-imagining of William Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Set in modern day Barbados, Theseus and Hippolyta are returning Nationals. This traditional tale takes a twist with the creation of new characters where Mechanicals are re-imagined as Fishermen, and Bottom as a Black Belly Sheep, along with Birdman and a Changeling Boy.
Mystery, magic and romance unfold within a beautiful Caribbean landscape and the grounds of Fustic House.
Set under a full moon and during the Crop Over festival, Puck is a Butler, while Oberon and Titania maintain the house during the day. Chaos and madness unfolds at night, exploring Caribbean folklore and culture.
This is a unique and entertaining re-imagination of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies.
Written and Directed by Shakirah Bourne. A Caribbean Dream will be released in cinemas this Autumn.
