Think Shakespeare is stuffy? Fuggedaboutit!

Bedfellows meet Goodfellas in this unique twist on Shakespeare's classic comedy. The play's "daytime world" is ruled by order and power, and in this production that structure is found in an organized crime family, not unlike the Sopranos. In contrast, nighttime brings forth the mischief and mayhem of the fairy world. These sprites are depicted as lost club kids, who exist in a world where, by night, they can be anyone they want to be.
