Imagine being shipwrecked and washing up on a foreign shore, barely escaping with your life, separated from your family, not knowing if they are alive or dead. To add to your distress, you are fearful of your status in this strange country, which may or may not welcome you. Once again, Shakespeare proves his relevance in today's world in this comedy of mistaken identities.

When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

Alice and Beau epitomize the perfect couple archetype: attractive, intelligent, and elitist. In an effort to refurbish their unfashionable sex life, they move to the city and immediately post an anonymous ad inviting strangers to their empty loft. When an unexpected and persistent black-out resets all the clocks in the loft to 12:00 a.m.; they panic and start the party far earlier than intended, filling the place of their missing guests with their own sexual fantasies and frustrations.
