“Wild, immersive and original…five stars might not be enough.”—Kate Kellaway, Observer

“A feverish disco dream…fabulously performed and inclusive to its marrow.”—Claire Allfree, Metro

A feuding king and queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles mistaken identities and transformations, with hilarious but dark consequences. The stage becomes a forest—a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs, and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot. DCP digital.
