Titania and Oberon (The Queen and King of the Fairies) talk about the mortal world they have long left behind. Because of her growing enuui, Titania wishes to go back to Earth for a day to rediscover what she feels she has lost. Oberon maintains there is nothing there that doesn't exist in the fairy realm. Titania's pleas win out and the pair travel to Earth. They see people looking desperately for an answer to a question that has been asked for centuries: WHAT IS LOVE? 'Love Thee' is a collection of short vignettes exploring the meaning of love. Through a combination of puppetry, visual arts, contemporary movement and humour, the creative team of Horizon Theatre seek answers.
'Horizon Theatre Company leaves Romania with a Trophy from the International Festival of Puppetry but also with the appreciation of the public who surrounded the actors at the end of the show to give their answer to the question 'What is Love?'.
