BITE: A Pucking Queer Cabaret

Pride Films and Plays will complete its fun summer in Mary’s Attic with the world premiere of BITE: A Pucking Queer Cabaret, PFP Artistic Associate Derek Van Barham’s immersive, pop-rock ode to A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As Puck and the other fairies at Mary’s prepare for a celebration, their world is rocked by news of a break-up between their King and Queen. When four mortals wander up the stairs, they get caught in a web of drinking and deception, as they become pawns in a magical game of love, 400 years in the making. Mary’s Attic will be filled with music, dance, and fairies of all kinds, as BITE retells one of the Bard’s beloved love stories through a queer lens.
