MKP plans on returning to the stage in 2021 with Drunk Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing. Please enjoy the gallery below, and we leave you with the immortal words of Robin (Puck) Goodfellow, from A Midsummer Night's Dream Act V, Scene II:   

"If we shadows have offended,   

 Think but this, and all is mended,   

 That you have but slumber'd here   

 While these visions did appear.   

 And this weak and idle theme,   

 No more yielding but a dream,   

 Gentles, do not reprehend:   

 if you pardon, we will mend:   

 And, as I am an honest Puck,   

  If we have unearned luck   

 Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,   

 We will make amends ere long;   

 Else the Puck a liar call;   

 So, good night unto you all.   

 Give me your hands, if we be friends,   

  And Robin shall restore amends."
