Storyboard Text

  • Defeated in battle and now I've got to marry the b......
  • Queen Hippolyta & King Theseus
  • Theseus' warning to Hermia: To you your father should be a god...if you yield not to your father's choice, you can endure the livery of a nun,...To live a barren sister all your life, Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon...
  • In a land where daughters marry who their father's tell them to, misguided father of Hermia, Egeus insists that Theseus tell his daughter to obey him: Marry Demetrius.
  • But I love Lysander
  • I love you too Hermia
  • But I love Hermia and I have her father's blessing
  • Helena, Hermia's best friend is hopelessley in love with Demetrius...Ahh - Demetrius is in love with Hermia!
  • Demetrius: Tempt not too much the hatred of my spirit. For I am sick when I do look on thee. Helena: And I am sick when I look not on you.
  • Bottom...I see their knavery. This is to make an ass of me, to fright me, if they could
  • THE COURSE OF TRUE LOVE NEVER DID RUN SMOOTH
  • Four local craftsmen, with foolishness & folly go off to the woods to rehearse a play they have written to perform at the up-coming wedding of Theseus & Hippolyta... ha ha - a play-within-a-play
  • Hermia and Lysander are in love and will run away together if they can't marry
  • Quick to the woods...
  • All is not well in fairy kingdom...jealousy, ill-temper, revenge
  • What, jealous Oberon? - Fairies skip hence. I have forsworn his bed & company
  • Oberon, King of the Fairies: Give me that boy and I'll come with you. Titania, Queen of the Fairies: Not for your entire fairy kingdom. - Come fairies, let's go. We're going to have an out-and-out brawl if I stay any longer.
  • I'll met by moonlight, proud Titania...How not nice to see you...Tarry, rash wanton. Am not I thy lord? How can you stand there shamelessly talking about me & Hippolyta, when you know that I know about your love for Theseus?
  • Oberon: My gentle Puck, come hither...Yet marked I where the bolt of Cupid fall. it fall upon a little western flower, Before milk-white, now purple with love's wound. And maidens call it "love-in-idleness." Fetch me that flower. The herb I showed thee once. The juice of it on sleeping eyelids laid will make man or woman madly dote Upon the next live creature that it sees. Puck: I'll put a girdle round about the earth in forty minutes
  • Puck: Mischievous meddlesome fairy, ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee
  • So far, we've introduced the characters, established the comic situation, and now watch the comedy develop...
  • Bless thee, Bottom, bless thee! Thou art translated Methinks, mistress, you should have little reason for that
  • On the first view, to say, to swear, I love thee.
  • Well, it's set way back in the middle of a field... When everybody's movin' around..around and around and around...Everybody's movin Oh, love shack is a little old place Where we can get together
  • Wherefore was I to this keen mockery born? When at your hands did I deserve this scorn?
  • Content with Hermia! No; I do repent. The tedious minutes I with her have spent. Not Hermia but Helena I love: Who will not change a Raven for a Dove?
  • I know a bank where the Wild Thyme blows, where Oxslips and the nodding Violet grows,..there sleeps Titania
  • Why are you grown so rude? What change is this? Sweet love, -
  • My Oberon! What visions have I seen Me thought I was was enamoured of an ass
  • Lord, what fools these Mortals be
  • Act IV ends the conflict and leads to the happy ending in Act V. What is most remarkable, perhaps, is the speed with which the conflict is resolved and the farce comes to an end; despite the ubiquity of chaos in Act III, all that is necessary to resolve matters is a bit of potion on Lysander’s eyelids and Oberon’s forgiveness of his wife. The climactic moment between Titania and Oberon, during which she agrees to give him the Indian boy, is not even shown onstage but is merely described
  • "..what was my dream. I will get Peter Quince to write a ballad of this dream. It shall be called bottom's Dream because it hath no bottom."
  • Dignity needs to be reinstated to all. Oberon wakes up his sleeping wife and shows her who her lover had been. She's horrified. Puck magic's bottom's head off. Bottom wakes up thinking he's had a dream...in conclusion everybody's happy, love triumphs and with who they want to be with - Hermia and Lysander are in love and with a dose of love potion sent his way Demetrius is now in love with Helena
  • (Waking) O Helena, goddess, nymph, perfect, divine!
  • Oh, excellent!
  • Fair lovers, you are fortunately met; Of this discourse we more will hear anon. Egeus, I will overbear your will; For in the temple, by and by with us, These couples shall eternally be knit
  • Go, Philostrate, Stir up the Athenian youth to merriments; awake the pert and nimble spirit of mirth; Turn melancholy forth to funerals; The pale companion is not for our pomp.
  • Such tricks have strong imaginations...Think but this, and all is mended: That you have but slumbered here, While these visions did appear: And this weak and idle theme, No more yielding but a dream, Gentles, do not reprehend. If you pardon, we will mend.
  • Here come the lovers, full of joy and mirth, Joy, gentle friends! Joy and fresh days of love, Accompany your hearts!
  • Hippolyta: This is the silliest stuff that I ever heard. Theseus: The best in this kind are but shadows; and the worst are no worse, if imagination amend them.
  • THE END Tones: Romantic; comedic; fantastic; satirical; dreamlike; joyful; farcical
