    This show is about: A wedding is about to take place between Theseus, the Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, the Queen of the Amazons. Egeus, an Athenian man, demands that Theseus force his daughter Hermia to marry Demetrius. But Hermia doesn’t want to marry Demetrius; she loves Lysander. They plan to run away and share their news with Helena, who loves Demetrius. Helena decides to tell Demetrius.

    Meanwhile, a group of workers are dividing up the parts for a play they are rehearsing for the Duke’s wedding. They plan to meet in the forest for their next rehearsal.

    Also in the forest are a group of Fairies. The King and Queen of the Fairies, Oberon and Titania, are fighting because Oberon wants a changeling boy from Titania and Titania refuses to give him up. Oberon plans to punish Titania by dropping love juice onto her eyelids while she sleeps. She will fall in love with the first thing she sees when she awakes.

    Hermia and Lysander run away into the forest. Demetrius chases them, and Helena chases Demetrius. Oberon sees Demetrius treat Helena poorly, and he tells his servant Puck to put his love juice on Demetrius’ eyes as well. But Puck mistakenly puts the juice on Lysander’s eyes, causing him to fall in love with Helena. In trying to fix the mistake, Demetrius also gets the love juice and now both men chase after Helena, who thinks they are trying to trick her. Hermia has no idea why Lysander has abandoned her, and blames Helena. Puck confuses the lovers until they fall asleep and when they wake, Demetrius loves Helena, and Lysander loves Hermia.

    At the same time, the workers rehearse in the forest and end up near a sleeping Titania. Puck plays a trick on them and changes Nick Bottom’s head into that of a donkey. He has no idea what has happened, but his friends run away in fear. The commotion wakes Titania, who falls in love with the first thing she sees — Bottom with the donkey head. She is so in love with Bottom that she no longer cares about her feud with Oberon and gives him whatever he wants.

    Everything and everyone goes back to normal. Puck removes the donkey head from Bottom, the workers reunite and present their play to the Duke, Lysander is able to marry Hermia and Demetrius marries Helena, and Oberon and Titania stop fighting.

    Puck speaks to the audience at the end and suggests that if anyone is offended by the play, to think of the whole thing as nothing but a dream.
