After The Dream

    by Bev Clark


Comedic Drama Play Script: 'After The Dream' by Bev Clark

A modern sequel to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this comedy-drama brings a new twist to an old tale.

Dee and Helen are celebrating their twentieth anniversary with their best friends Mia and Sandy. Dee and Helen are blissfully happy. Sandy and Mia are on the verge of a divorce. Into this Midsummer Eve’s party come three new-age travellers; Ron, Tanya and their son Robin.

As the evening progresses, it is clear that these strange gate-crashers have come on a mission to right and old wrong and complete some unfinished business.

When Helen and Dee’s daughter Faye arrives, the magic starts to mix with the laughter and wine, until there is a shock announcement which brings them all to their knees.

As the plot thickens, the twist and turns reveal themselves to show the complications of love and some dark secrets. Who really loves who?

By lifting a spell everyone’s hearts are broken and with the coming morning they each have a new destiny and the mysterious travellers leave Fate to guide the mortals into the future.

Shakespeare’s lovers and fairies are given a contemporary twist in this funny, clever comedy that also has a dark modern theme.
