Shakespeare in the Caribbean

What happens when you take Shakespeare and move him to the Caribbean?  A Caribbean Dream is what happens.  A take on the classic play moved 4,500 miles from where it was written.

A fun take on the classic story as you can see with the below trailer

A refreshingly modern, diverse and sprightly take on this classic tale, A CARIBBEAN DREAM brings the Bard into the twenty-first century. Theseus and Hippolyta are returning Nationals, arriving back in Barbados to be married during Crop Over. Using the island’s folklore, cultural history, and landscape, and portraying mixed-race relationships using a Barbadian and British cast; the film’s Caribbean setting is the perfect backdrop for this tale of mysticism and chaos on the night before the Midsummer celebrations.
