About The Lovers presented by Bell Shakespeare - SYD

World Premiere: Love, pop and Shakespeare!

Featuring original songs and an adapted script by Laura Murphy, The Lovers is a fresh and magical pop-infused reimagining of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Oberon and Puck have devoted centuries trying to craft the perfect happy ending. However, as they look out over an increasingly disconnected world where would-be lovers are afraid to ‘catch feels’ and the path to romance is always one swipe away, Oberon fears there will be no more happily-ever-afters.

Until one day, they happen upon four young lovers.

Directed by Shaun Rennie (Rent, Baby Doll) with a superb cast, a live four-piece band and an irresistibly infectious score, The Lovers is a heart-warming and hilarious retelling of Shakespeare’s beloved story that explores the magic and mishaps of romantic love.
