A Midsummer Night’s Dream (William Shakespeare)

We live in a time where magic is money, where mystical forests make room for oaken desks and Apple Macs. This is where the illustrious investment company THESEUSco has agreed to a merger with up-and-coming HIPPOltd. With the meeting of the two companies new relations are forged and old ones rekindled.
Security officer Oberon is schocked to find that the new office decorater is his ex-from-a-bad-breakup Titania. He sends handyman Puck to lead her astray. The love lives of young office clerks of the companies get tangled up into the shenanigans.

Meanwhile, five ambitious entrepreneurs from the local village prepare to pitch an idea for a grand scale blockbuster to be presented on the day of the merger. Since their crude tastes probably do not meet with those of top cat Thesia, they risk making asses of themselves.
It is as if the bard predicted that in a modern office things are dealt with most obscenely and courageously.
