Jumping from Athens to Aotearoa, with a cast of New Zealand’s finest comic talent, this is an uproarious wild ride of magic, mayhem and mutiny. In William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, young lovers Lysander and Hermia defy the Duke by eloping to an aunt’s house in the woods. But, just who is this law-snubbing, free-loving aunty? What’s she doing in the bush? And what happens when the law comes knocking at her door? This riotous reworking of Shakespeare’s most popular play takes a cannon to the canon. With quick, witty dialogue and a pacey plot, Lysander’s Aunty or A Most Rageful Irreverent Comedy Concerning an Offstage Character from A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a brand-new, energetic, large-ensemble production led by award-winning Trick of the Light duo, director Hannah Smith and writer Ralph McCubbin Howell. A co-production between Auckland Theatre Company, Trick of the Light, Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts, Auckland Arts Festival and Brilliant Adventures. Commissioned by The Court Theatre.
