A comedy by William Shakespeare
In the woods outside of Athens, lovers confront the mysteries of romantic desire in one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays.
Threatened with death if she marries against her father’s wishes, Hermia elopes with her lover, Lysander, pursued by rival suitor Demetrius and his spurned admirer, Helena. In the enchanted woods, love’s lunacy reaches its giddiest heights – both for the bewildered couples and for an aspiring actor transformed into the unlikely consort of a fairy queen.
