Lysander and Hermina have there a rendezvous, Helena and Demetrius are there, too as well as some actors, who are practicing a play for the ongoing wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta.

Benny Hill's High Point
3 September 2000 | by (New York City, New York, USA) – See all my reviews

Benny Hill was, in my opinion, to British television what Jackie Gleason and Milton Berle were to American television. But there is one fundamental difference between Mr. Hill and the aforementioned American comics, and it could be summed up in one word: Shakespeare. Mr. Gleason often talked about doing a TV production of "Hamlet," in which he would get to spout off the famous "To be, or not to be" line. But Mr. Hill actually DID a TV production of a Shakespeare play, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," in which he played Bottom. He more than held his own amongst all the fine players who surrounded him. It is only a shame that in the twenty-eight years left of his life, he never did anything that came close to such true artistry.
