    Synopsis

    “Thy Eternal Summer” is a modern adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s most famous sonnets – Sonnet 18….”Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” In this modern adaptation of this beautiful poem we see the story of love through the eyes of a new mother for her baby infant boy. In a story somewhat reminiscent of Robert Munsch’s “I’ll Love you Forever” we see the boy grow through different stages of his life: as a vibrant infant; as a 10 year-old boy playing in the golden sunshine; as a 30 year-old Adonis pumping iron; and as a healthy, handsome 60 year-old man who is happy and joyous. This is a poem about love and eternal beauty - eternal because this Adonis is kept alive by the love of his mother and the very poem that is written about him.
