Lysander loves Hermia. Hermia loves Lysander. Demetrius loves Hermia. Helena loves Demetrius. No one loves Helena (poor Helena). This byzantine love quadrangle turns even more ludicrous when, lost in the woods on a midsummer's eve, the love-struck quartet finds themselves at the mercy of a band of mischievous fairies armed with a potent love potion.

When Princeton University graduate and Yale MFA candidate Maeli Goren was rereading A Midsummer Night's Dream earlier this year, a piece of text stood out to her that never had before: a speech by Titania, the queen of the fairies, in which she speaks of '[t]he spring, the summer, / The childing autumn, angry winter change / Their wonted liveries, and the mazèd world, / By their increase, now knows not which is which'-in other words, a world plunged into chaos by a changing climate. Suddenly, one of Shakespeare's most-produced plays had become unusually timely.

The forest dwellers were mesmerising. The use of Te Reo to portray Shakespeare-speak was beautifully executed. Accolades to Anatonio Te Maioha in his portrayal of Oberon and Renaye Tamati as Titania. These two brought a level of myth, the spiritual and passion totally enhancing, honouring and making the story part of 'us'. Beautiful. The forest scenes were spellbinding with ancient creatures of myth and legend replacing the usual fairies. Those who could not understand the Te Reo could still understand the story. Te Maioha and Tamati respectively played the roles of Theseus and Hippolyta wearing a clever combination of traditional and Maori. Clever. Reuben Butler as Puck is sensational with his agility, delivery and all round high energy.
