Storyline

William Shakespeare's most popular comedy was written around 1595. It portrays the adventures of four star-crossed lovers and a group of amateur actors, their interactions with woodland fairies and a duke and duchess. Taking place in a mythical Athens and an enchanted forest, there is a handsome fairy king, a misguided parent, young lovers, a weaver who's transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites and elves. This work is widely performed around the globe, and no wonder - it's about the world's most popular pastime, falling in love. But as Puck knows, falling in love can make fools of us all!
