Storyline

During an engagement party thrown by Theo and Polly for their daughter Hermia and James, a man she grew up with but doesn't really love, Hermia's true love Xander shows up. After Hermia declares her engagement to James is off, it becomes clear that her best friend Helena has been in love with James all along. When the King and Queen of the Fairies (themselves feuding) decide to straighten things out with a love potion, their meddling goes terribly wrong and the relationships between all those involved become even murkier than they were.

Quotes

[Theo tells Polly how much he loves her]

Shakespeare's Dream in 2005
27 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An utterly enchanting piece. Each and every character was portrayed exactly right, but with edgy modern personalities which made for fantastic viewing. The script was faultless and the same time effortless and light-hearted. The acting was first-class, as the actors understood the script perfectly and had no trouble in delivering it to the viewers.

However, the real stroke of genius was the audience interaction, especially when Puck dropped love juice onto the camera lens. This really helped in making the audience feel like they were right there in Dream Park with the warring couples and magical beings!
