Where the Wild Thyme Blows
by
Rebecca Salomonsson


In this modern take on William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Demetrius is in love with Hermia because of her amazing math skills, but she only has eyes for Lysander. Helena is in love with Demetrius, who doesn't like her. Duke Theseus is on the cusp of marrying Hippolyta, a bridezilla who is making life difficult for her party planner, Philostrate. The fairy king and queen are in a lovers spat, causing chaos in the woods. Meanwhile, a crew of Mechanicals - the worst acting troupe in the land - are rehearsing a play for the Duke's wedding day. The fairies narrate the action in rhyming couplets, as the lovers take to the woods and get tangled up in magic charms, misplaced love, and misunderstanding. But all ends happily for lovers, actors, and wedding planners alike.
