A Caribbean Dream (2017)



This beautiful re-imagining of Shakespeare's magical fairy tale "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is set modern day, under a full moon and during a Caribbean Festival.


William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Nights Dream re imagined in Barbados. Conceived by Producer Melissa Simmonds.  Written and Directed by Shakirah Bourne. 

The Cropover festival, lovers’ quarrels, powerful herbs…and fairies. Those are the ingredients that director and screenwriter Shakirah Bourne has brewed into a modern-day retelling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Set in Barbados, the film mixes Shakespearean language with Barbadian dialect amid lush tropical imagery for a Caribbean take on a comic classic.
