Midsummer/Jersey is the hilarious, high-octane re-telling of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream set on the boardwalk of a seaside town in modern-day New Jersey. The story revolves around the impending marriage of the Governor of New Jersey, the frustrated love affairs of four beach-bound high school crushes, a lively crew of fairies and the staff of the local beauty salon (run by Patti Quince and Stylist Nikki Bottom).
The night takes a magical turn when Oberon, (in the middle of a marital dispute with his wife Titania) and the impish Puck arrive on the scene armed with a powerful love-potion and a desire for mischief making.
With several weddings, the fate of fairyland and the acting careers of six beauticians hanging in the balance, the lovers take to the boardwalk, backed by pop music and an iPhone-obsessed wood sprite.
