Shakespeare in Hollywood

Shakespeare’s famed characters, Oberon and Puck, in their magical wanderings, by mistake find themselves on the movie set of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 1934 Hollywood. Taken by the novelty of the place, the two join the cast, playing… themselves! Hilarious, rapid-fire, wacky comedy with a touch of poetry and romance thrown in for good measure.
