Midsummer Nights
Shakespeare's classic as you've never seen it before!

The streets run with rain, the wind chills you, darkness envelops you. A door opens and something beckons you, entices you. You go in. Rythym pounds, colours flicker and effervesce, fairies dance and swirl, Puck sells a special kind of high, you are lost with the lovers, we draw you on, draw you in, the nightclub is our world. Welcome to the dream.

Rogue Elephant presents this extremely different take on Shakespeare's classic comedy, playing with the darker, grittier side of the text. Set in a Melbourne nightclub, in an enclosed underground community, the play deals with themes from bondage to drugs, love to emotional torment. Women are property, rules are there to be broken and the night wins in the end.
