Storyboard Text

  • Egeus: We’re following you not only because it is our duty, but also because we want to.
  • They all leave except Lysander and Hermia
  • What’s going on, my love? Why are you so pale? Why have your rosy cheeks faded so quickly?
  • Oh, honey! Listen, in books they say that true love always faces obstacles. Either the lovers have different social standings
  • Probably because my cheeks' roses needed rain, which I could easily give them with all the tears in my eyes.
  • Or else they were very different ages
  • Oh, what an obstacle that would be! Imagine being too high on the social ladder, and falling in love with someone beneath you.
  • Or else their guardians and advisors said no
  • What hell, to have your love life determined by someone else!
  • How awful! Being too old to marry someone young.
  • Or, even if the lovers are a good match, their love might be ruined by war, death, or sickness, so that the affair only lasts an instant. Their time together might be as fleeting as a shadow or as short as a dream, lasting only as long as it takes a lightning bolt to flash across the sky. Before you can say “look,” it’s gone. That’s how intense things like love are quickly destroyed.
  • If true lovers are always thwarted, then it must be a rule of fate. So let’s try to be patient as we deal with our problem. It’s as normal a part of love as dreams, sighs, wishes, and tears.
