A Midsummer Night's Dreaming. Mildura. 1956.
By William Shakespeare.
   

It's what happens when your Father tells you -looking down the barrel of a shotgun and in front of all his friends- that you've got to marry some guy he's got picked out for you, or become a Nun!
Some guy your best friend used to go out with.
Some guy who ISN'T your boyfriend!

It's what happens when your boyfriend grabs his Dad's Ute so you can run away together,
but doesn't check whether there's any petrol in the tank, and then acts like it's YOUR fault when it conks out!

It's what happens when you're lost in the Bush in the middle of a Flood, being followed by that guy there's no way you're going to marry - and your best friend who still has a crush on him - have a fight with your boyfriend who leaves you ALL ALONE with Snakes and Spiders and Sounds and Spirits... And you're so tired you lie down.
So tired you sleep.
So tired you dream.
It IS just a Dream......isn't it?
