Weather has been used for dramatic effect since fiction began, so much so that the term ‘pathetic fallacy’ is probably one of the main things you remember from your English Literature classes. Hands down, the most dramatic of all meteorological phenomenon is fog. It can be used to ratchet up tension, conceal terrifying creatures and even provide important characters with a suitably dramatic entrance. Spanning genres from horror to sci-fi, mist and fog are more versatile than mere set dressing; they dominate scenes and often make them the most memorable part of their respective movies.

Anfield 1989. For the first time in a century the final game of the season pitted the top two teams against each other for an intense sporting duel watched by millions.

The odds were stacked against them.
A Caribbean Dream is a re-imagining of William Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Set in modern day Barbados, Theseus and Hippolyta are returning Nationals.
