This brilliantly orchestrated comedy of confusion and desire probes the very nature of love.

In an enchanted forest, a quartet of mismatched lovers and a gang of hapless actors cross paths with the king and queen of the fairies, resulting in a night of moonlit mirth. Love triumphs at dawn – but not before trickster Puck has had his way with all.

In a rock ‘n’ rollin’ production by David Grindley, Chris played louche and tatooed fairy “Steve NeFairyous” and understudied the mischievous Puck.
