WHAT'S THE SHOW ABOUT: In the days before Theseus, the Duke of Athens, marries the Amazon Queen Hippolyta, three young lovers are brought to court for judgment regarding an arranged wedding. Hermia is to marry Demetrius but is in love with Lysander. Rather than face a penalty, the lovers flee into the woods where Titania, queen of the fairies, has gathered Fairyland to bless the royal marriage. A band of craftsmen have gone into the same woods to rehearse a play they hope to perform as part of the nuptial celebration. Oberon, king of the fairies, arrives intent on revenge with his imp servant, Puck, and the mischievous fun with love begins.
