ACT 1 SCENE 1
Now pretty Hippolyta we are getting married soon but not soon enough! We must make sure all of Athens are ready to have a good party with us.
It will go really quickly and I can't wait either
Duke Theseus I am furious! My daughter Hermia will not do what she is told and marry the man I have chosen. She wants to marry her boyfriend but I do not like him. If she does not do what I say I want her punished.
I will not marry Demetrius, I love Lysander.
Hermia you have three choices; marry Demetruis; become a nun or sadly, die.
Well then I want her punished. She should never disobey her father. I own her and therefore I want her put to death.
Oh Lysander, what will we do? This is awful.
Don't worry, I have a plan. We can run away tonight, through the woods, and go to my aunt's house in the next town. She will help us.
Oh Lysander I can't wait to run away with you. Oh look, my best friend Helena. I will tell her, we can trust her.
Oh great, my best friend is leaving and I will have no one. I am so in love with Demetrius but he only looks at Hermia. It is so unfair, why can't I be as pretty as she is. No one loves me.
