A Midsummer Night's Dream

William Shakespeare
A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of William Shakespeare's most beloved comedies. Shakespeare combined theatricality, Greek mythology and the supernatural to create what is arguably his most playfully imaginative work. On the eve of the wedding between Theseus and Hippolyta, four lovers find themselves at the mercy of the fairies in the Athenian woods. Interconnecting with a ramshackle group of players rehearsing a play for the celebrations, the stories and confusions interweave and finally resolve.
