A Midsummer Night's Reverie
Athens is a world ruled by law, but deep in the woods, the only law is attraction. Four young lovers get caught up in the kinky follies of a warring Faerie King and Queen and find themselves suddenly much more sexually free than they were before. Love moves toward love in Sinner Saint Burlesques new interpretation of Shakespeares classic. Pairing a queer twist using Shakespeares text with spectacular costuming and ecdysiastic pageantry, you too will fall under the spell of this erotic lucid dream.
Produced in association with Theatre Off Jackson, Sinner Saint Burlesque is thrilled to bring back this production for its second year. Don't miss your opportunity to see this innovative reworking of the Shakespeare classic that foregrounds body-positivity, sexual freedom, and equity and justice. See the show that audience proclaimed "bawdy and inspiring, entertaining and engaging, salacious and sexy as fuck" this June at Theatre Off Jackson!
If you want to spend a little more time in our world and keep dreaming with us, consider purchasing a VIP ticket. All VIP ticket holders get to attend an additional 30-min screening of Sinner Saint Burlesque's special R-rated edit of the 2001 erotic classic A Midsummer Night's Cream starring Nina Hartley! Join us before the show to sit back, relax, laugh along and enjoy what happens when adult film stars tackle Shakespearean language. (VIPs at the 10 pm Friday show get to stay up extra late with us and catch the movie after the performance.)
OPENING NIGHT ONLY:
Because our version of Midsummer values consent, join producers and cast members after the show on opening night for an intimate 30-min discussion with Sar Surmick of the Consent Academy (www.consent.academy) exploring issues of consent within the work and how we can apply learning to our own lives.
