A Midsummer Night's Dream

By William Shakespeare (11)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare’s enchanting comedy of beguiled lovers, pokes gentle fun at the illusions that create romance. Noble Lysander and Hermia are in love, but complications arise when Demetrius, once the suitor of Helena, also falls in love with Hermia. Egeus, Hermia’s father, wants her to marry Demetrius, and under Athenian law, the girl has four days to accept his choice of suitor, or face the convent, or worse, death. Hermia and Lysander escape to the forest, where love is causing trouble between Oberon and Titania, King and Queen of the fairies. In a prank, Oberon has his servant, named Puck, sprinkle a love potion on the queen’s eyes, so that she will fall in love with the first creature she sees. Titania opens her eyes to gaze on the laborer Bottom, who along with his friends is putting on a production of “Pyramus and Thisbe”, with hilarious confusion. A second misdirected love potion makes Lysander fall in love with Helena. When Oberon finally removes the spell, the couples are once again properly paired, reiterating that no comedy has better explored the theme of “love is in the eye of the beholder”. Consistently still put into production, A Midsummer Night's Dream is a delightful take on love's inherent ability to turn a world upside down.
