A Midsummer Night’s Dream, William Shakespeare's most popular comedy, deals with the universal theme of love and its complications: featuring 3 interlocking plots, connected by the wedding of Theseus, Duke of Athens and the Amazonian queen Hippolyta.

When Hermia refuses to comply with her father’s wish for her to marry his chosen man, Demetrius, she is advised by the Duke that the law requires a daughter to marry the suitor chosen by her father, or else face death or lifelong chastity as a nun.  Faced with an impossible choice, she and her real love- Lysander decide to elope by running away into the forest.

As it turns out, Hermia’s best friend, Helena, is in love with Demetrius so she decides to tell him of the couple’s plan in hopes that it will make him like her more.  The moment Demetrius learns of the elopement plan, he chases the couple into the forest with Helena chasing close behind.

Meanwhile, in the same forest, Oberon, king of the fairies, and his queen, Titania, are fighting over which of them has the right to one of the queen’s servants. When she refuses to relinquish the boy, Oberon recruits the mischievous fairy, Puck to help him by applying a magical juice from a flower, which makes the victim fall in love with the first living thing they see when they wake up.

Things get crazy when Oberon encounters the 2 Athenian couples and tells Puck to use the magic to fix their love lives as well.  When Puck puts the magic potion on the wrong guy, forcing him to fall in love with the wrong girl, the couples are enveloped in a fog of Puck's errors and a maze of romantic entanglements.

Meanwhile, in the very same forest, a group of amateur actors are rehearsing a play they hope to perform at the Duke’s wedding.  As if things aren’t crazy enough, Puck decides to play a joke on an actor named Bottom by turning his head into the head of a donkey.  The prank backfires when the queen wakes up, sees Bottom and immediately falls in love with the donkey-headed actor.

As Puck will learn, falling in love can make fools of us all. Love is crazy, love is mad...but will love win out in the end? A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the original romantic comedy and is widely performed around the world.
