Summary
A FRESH REINTERPRETATION OF A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM BY THE AUSTRALIAN CHILDREN'S LAUREATE Titania rose to her feet. 'What is going on here, Peaseblossom?' she demanded. I bowed to her. 'I apologise, Your Majesty. But I'd rather be known as Pete.''Pete?' She frowned. 'That's no name for a fairy.' 'No, it isn't,' I said, meeting her eyes. At Court, he's known as Fairy Peaseblossom, a servant to the Queen. But as Pete, he prefers pizza to sugar plums and denim to daffodils. He wants to choose his own life too. But how can he when a fairy's sole duty is to obey the all-powerful Queen Titania? This is Shakespeare's popular and delightful comedy 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' with an added army of Amazons, a sea serpent and a selkie called Gaela, who luckily for Pete makes the best pizza in the world. It is also a story of the intrigues of the Fairy Court, of vampire plots to dominate the world and of impossible loves that might just come true. Not with enchantment, but when two hearts thread together making a magic of their own.
