If you dare, step inside Athens High and the woods bordering the school grounds. But be aware you might not leave feeling quite yourself.
The students of Athens High are preparing for the end of year Summer Prom. It’s a time to celebrate, perform and be in love!
The teenagers of the school are suffering with seemingly normal adolescent concerns. For young Hermia, Helena, Lysandra and Demetrius are all trying to manage their relationships as best as 14 year olds can – unrequited love, pushy disapproving parents, same sex relationship acceptance and heartbreak – this a coming of age story after all.
But, just when adolescence couldn’t get more complicated – it does. The teenagers become the playthings of the mysterious creatures that inhabit the Athens High woods.
Meanwhile the school film club are rehearsing for their end of term performance for the Summer Prom – it will be the main entertainment of the event and the stakes are high. But a battle of the egos, with a drop of magic, throw the film club off balance. Will the film club finish and polish the project in time?
