Love on the Brain

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and here at Sweet Tea Shakespeare, we have love on the brain! Cupid’s little arrows are flying and our upcoming production of Midsummer Night’s Dream features a little “cupid” of its own. Puck, also known as Robin Goodfellow, functions as the bringer of love in this whimsical Shakespeare comedy. Let’s look at a few things the god of love and the mischievous fairy have in common.

While Cupid has not always been portrayed as the cherub with the bow and arrows that now comes to mind, he and Puck can both be portrayed as childlike, working to aid couples in falling in love. Cupid works his will be shooting a magical arrow to cause those hit to fall in love. Similarly, Puck puts juice of a magical flower on the lovers’ eyes to manipulate the potential romances. Of course, when feelings are magically manipulated, chaos and hilarity ensue!

Join us for the comedic misadventures of Puck, this little bringer of love. Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s production of Midsummer Night’s Dream opens April 23rd. Don’t miss the fun! Get your tickets here!
