William Shakespeare's comedic play portrays the events surrounding Theseus, the Duke of Athens, as he prepares a festival celebrating his marriage to Hippolyta. Practicing a play for the celebration, six artisans rehearse in the woods, mischief surrounding their every mnove. Meanwhile, the pains of love surround Demetrius, Hermia, Lysander, and Helena as each searches for a soul mate. All along, fairies play tricks upon them to complicate matters further. At the end, you'll find yourself wondering, Was it all a dream?
