  • Act 1, Scene 1Theseus's castle in Athens. It is 4 days until his wedding.
  • Dear Hippolyta, I cannot wait to be married to you. 4 days is too long!
  • Do not worry, my king. These days will pass quickly.
  • Egeus, Demetrius, Hermia, and Lysander approach.
  • Eew, commoners, 12 o'clock.
  • Hermia, what do you have to say?
  • My king, I am Egeus. Lysander has tricked my daughter Hermia into liking him and not Demetrius. I have the right to either kill her or make her a nun.
  • I never tricked anyone. I should marry Hermia because she actually likes me andDemetrius is having an affair with Helena.
  • Hermia, consider the consequences. You have 4 days to decide. If you choose Lysander, you could be killed. Come, Egeus, Demetrius, and Hippolyta. We must discuss our wedding.
  • I want to marry Lysander. I don't like Demetrius.
  • What if we sneak away tomorrow?
  • That's a great idea... oh, uh... hiHelena. How much did youhear?
  • He's all yours.
  • Enough. Don't worry, I won't tell. I just wish I was more like you so Demetrius would like me.
  • But... maybe Demetrius will like me more if I tell him.
  • End of Act1, Scene 1
