A Midsummer Night's Dream

by William Shakespeare

April 24 at 10:30 a.m.


The Duke of Athens is getting married. On that day, he has charged the beautiful Hermia to choose her fate: either obey her father and marry her suitor Demetrius or join a convent. Hermia chooses instead to flee into the woods with her lover, Lysander. They are pursued by Demetrius, who is pursued by Helena, who is deeply in love with him. They stumble into a quarrel between Oberon, King of Fairies, and his queen, Titania. The fairies use their powers to attempt to fix the plight of the four lovers but only end up causing more chaos and confusion. At the same time, an acting troupe enter the woods to rehearse the play they will perform for the duke's wedding. Bottom, the weaver, falls victim to Oberon's attempt to win over his queen. The fairies make things right in the end and they all live happily ever after. Believed to have been written between 1590 and 1596, A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Shakespeare's most popular comedies. Appropriate for High School audiences.
