Protagonists: Pyramus and Thisbe Antagonists: Their families Setting: Nighttime, under the White Mulberry Tree Basic conflict: man vs man (Parents vs Kids)
Pyramus' parents and Thisbe's parents don't like the idea of these two being together. The forbid this idea of them being together, this makes the kids rebel.
Pyramus and Thisbe find a crack that separates their two homes and they whisper through the crack to make a plan to meet at the Mulberry tree once their parents are sleeping. Thisbe gets their first with a lioness there to greet her.
Once Thisbe hides from the lion, Pyramus arrives causing him to arrive when he finds Thisbe's veil covered in blood and her not being there. Pyramus takes blame for Thisbe's "death" and causes him to kill himself along with his love.
When Thisbe knows the lion is gone she reappears from hiding to see that her one true love has killed himself because of her. Thisbe can't stand the thought of being without him so she kills herself as well.
As Thisbe is dying she prays to the lords that their bodies be buried together so they can stay together forever. When their parents find out about their children's deaths they follow the orders of burying them together. Love is a powerful force.
