A hilarious exploration of friendship, loyalty, ambition and BOYS! Brilliant, new interpretation of 'A Midsummer's Night Dream' set in twenty-first century high school America.
When the auditions poster for the high school production of Romeo and Juliet goes up, best friends Hermia and Helena get planning immediately. Hermia wants to be an actress, so the timing is just perfect for her. Helena has loftier ideas of being a poet, but is happy to be involved for her friend's sake. Then comes the blow - the drama teacher is planning AN ALL BOY PRODUCTION, using most of the football team!
What follows is a hilarious exploration of friendship, loyalty, ambition - and BOYS. Told mostly through the girls' correspondence via Instant Messaging, email and notes in class, its lightness of touch and sparky dialogue is true-to life and completely believable. You WILL believe in magic!
