Shakespeare’s widely beloved comedy is updated to the lush setting of 1980s Sicily in this fresh and immersive adaptation. The play follows the budding romances of four lovers as their families gather for a languid summer of revelries. However, as the festivities heat up and summer draws on, gossip and betrayal threaten to tear them apart. This adaptation balances the text’s playful dialogue and achingly romantic core while experimenting with a new setting to create a unique, emotionally charged production not to be missed.
