Oberon’s gone mad. We’re talking full-on Hamlet. The fairy king of Midsummer has kidnapped William Shakespeare, director of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Shakespearean Heroes International Evil Lessening Division) and his mischievous sidekick Puck has brought him the Infinity Quill.
A quill unlike any other, for the Infinity Quill has the power to rewrite history itself and forge a new future at the will of its master.
Slightly anxious of the scenario that is unfolding, Shakespeare’s greatest heroes; Hamlet, Macbeth, Ophelia and Brutus decide that they should do something to stop the oncoming apocalypse. Under instructions from Puck they head to Midsummer’s Forest.
Shakespeare’s Avengers Assembleth: Age of Oberon, performed by Drake’s Drummers Theatre Company at the Cockpit Theatre, Friday 19 Aug at 7:00pm and Saturday 20 August 3:00pm and 7:00pm.
Written and directed by Pelham Grosvenor-Stevenson, Callum Moffat and Adam Toon.
