Shakespearean whimsy and pandemic anxieties are animated in “A Midsummer Night’s Quarantine,” a recent co-production of Lit Moon Pictures and Stanislavsky Films. The video offers a glimpse of how actors in Santa Barbara, USA, and Karaganda, Kazakhstan, are coping with social isolation in their respective spaces... and how Shakespeare’s most mischievous characters emerge from the actors’ quarantine activities (or lack thereof). Check out the video above for a thoughtful, emotional, and humorous meditation on isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic.
