SYNOPSIS: An errant computer and a mysterious comet conspire to send three teenagers back to Shakespeare's time. The teens soon find themselves acting in an 'olde' version of Pyramus and Thisbe with Shakespeare's children! Meanwhile back at home, two computer geeks are hard at work trying to bring their friends back to their own time.

"The play is charming. The teens talk in a believable manner and the interaction between the castaways and the 16th century teenagers made for really good scenes. The dialogue is fast-moving, never drags and is clever. Readers appreciated your successful attempt to distinguish between 16th century conversation and 21st century conversation. There is a definite message about accepting differences in others. The play serves as a great way to present a little about Shakespeare in an entertaining way. Readers loved how Midsummer Night's Dream evolved in the play."

"There is a good energy to the play. The children have a strong presence and clear personalities and the computer is used in a straight forward and no-nonsense fashion that it is very effective."
Reader - Bonderman Symposium
"I think you have an interesting and different idea. I like the idea that some of the characters went back in time and others didn't and the attempt at cell phone communication from one century to another. I enjoyed the integration of computer problems (we all identify!) and the clever way you tied a contemporary performance of A Midsummer's Night Dream to a visit to Shakespeare's Garden."
