“Proud & Loud Arts’ Pyramus and Thisbe is that rare thing, a perfect combination of form and content.”Matt Fenton, Contact Manchester
A tale of two lovers willing to sacrifice everything to be together, forever.
Ryan and Sophia spend all of their time consumed by their on-line life, their relationship exists through social media, gaming and blogging.
In reality they are prevented from seeing each other by their feuding parents. But when our lovers forge a secret plan for a real world meet they have to face the unexpected and explosive consequences.
