A Midsummer Night's Dream

by William Shakespeare

The course of true love never did run smooth...

Young lovers, feuding fairies and amateur actors collide in the woods outside Athens on a midsummer night.

Egeus wants his daughter to marry Demetrius, but she's in love with Lysander. Refusing to obey her father, Athenian law dictates that Hermia must now face the death penalty or enter a convent. That night Hermia and Lysander elope into an enchanted forest – a place where reason and law are turned on their heads and human instinct is set free.

Elsewhere in the wild woods, the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, quarrel over a page-boy.  The course of true love never did run smooth. Spells are cast, identities confused and soon Lysander falls in love with Helena instead of Hermia. And Titania is in love with a man who has a donkey’s head instead of his own.

Is it real? Is it all a dream? Reality and appearances merge in Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy, all on midsummer’s night.
