The Lovers
Bell Shakespeare presents
The Lovers

23 Oct 2022 to 20 Nov 2022

Love, pop and Shakespeare!

World Premiere

Oberon and Puck have devoted centuries trying to craft the perfect happy ending. However, as they look out over an increasingly disconnected world where would-be lovers are afraid to ‘catch feels’ and the path to romance is always one swipe away, Oberon fears there will be no more happily-ever-afters.

Until one day, they happen upon four young lovers.

Directed by Shaun Rennie (RENT, Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour - The Phantom of the Opera) with a superb cast, a live four-piece band and an irresistibly infectious score, The Lovers is a heartwarming and hilarious retelling of Shakespeare’s beloved story that questions our enduring search for the romanticised version of true love we see in the movies.
