Description

Oberon (A Midsummer Night’s Musical) is a sequel to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Set 20 years after (and 1000 years before) that fateful night in that magical woods near Athens, Oberon picks up the stories of Shakespeare’s Faeries and Mortals at a time when the world as most of them know it is about to change completely.

The majority of the characters from the original play return in this sequel, although many of their lives have not turned out as might have been predicted. There is one completely new character, and one other who has grown up considerably.
