Series: Shakespeare Re Told

A British mini-series consisting of four Shakespeare plays updated to the modern day with modern sensibilities

Much Ado About Nothing


The Taming of the Shrew

A Midsummer Night's Dream
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Puck does this constantly.
  • Composite Character: Egeus (Hermia's father) and Theseus (the Duke of Athens) are combined into a single character named Theo.
    • Theseus's fiancée Hippolyta becomes Polly, Theo's wife of many years and mother of Hermia, so this may also count. (Hermia's mother never appears in the original play, but it's a fair bet that she existed at some point.)
  • Interspecies Romance: Titania and Oberon.
