About

Utopia. God is female - Nature herself. When four shepherds beg for a mate, she creates Pandora, the world's first woman. But the seven planets are jealous, and take turns to revenge themselves on her as she is pursued by the four love-struck men.

Mixing astrology, myth, magic and farce, this extraordinary dream-play by John Lyly, England's first great playwright, was performed before Elizabeth I sometime around 1590.

With bewildered lovers suffering dizzying emotional transformations at the hands of supernatural forces in a night-time woodland chase, it clearly inspired Shakespeare's own A Midsummer Night's Dream.
