Tarragon Theatre – Extra Space


September 26th, 2008 – October 19th, 2008


Paul Dunn’s sexy and darkly comic contemporary sequel to A Midsummer Night’s Dream… Artfully blending the romantic heart of Shakespeare’s classic with a modern sensibility, Dunn explores what happens when Demetrius, Helena, Hermia and Lysander finally wake up. Using an edgy mix of humour and pathos, Offensive Shadows reveals an uncertain future, where magic can’t always save the day. (
