The Thyme of the Season Home | E-mail|
It's Hallowe'en, three months after Midsummer. When Titania and Oberon need to pay their 7-yearly tithe to hell, they need to find a human soul to sacrifice. Puck's been ensorcelled by a witch so that he can't sleep, and there's a new Autumn fairy, Pumpkinseed, who is in love with that merry wanderer of the night. Meanwhile, Helena is pregnant, Demetrius thinks she's cheating, Lysander is exploring his feminine side, and Hermia is unsatisfied. Bottom has become a huge famous rich ass. Everyone goes into the forest, but will they all come back out?
