Storyboard Text

  • What are we going to do?
  • Egeus, Hermia's father, is telling Hermia she cannot marry Lysander and she must marry Demetrius, otherwise she will be put to death.
  • I shall tell Demetrius of this , and then he will fall in love with me!
  • Me and Lysander are going to run off to the woods and get married, I would do anything to not be with Demetrius.
  • Hermia and Lysander are going to run away, leaving Demetrius without a bride. Helena, however, sees this as an opportunity to get Demetrius's attention as she has been in love with him for a while.
  • I have told you before Helena, I do not love you! Now, I must find Hermia before she gets married to that awful Lysander.
  • Oberon, the fairy king, orders Puck, his servant, to squeeze magical flower juice in Demetrius's eyes so he will fall in love with Helena. However, Puck makes a vital mistake. 
  • Helena tells Demetrius of the elopement, and he goes to the woods in an attempt to find Hermia. Helena trails behind, her plan failing, so she is now desperate.
  • Puck made the mistake of putting the flower juice into Lysander's eyes instead of Demetrius's.
  • Because of Puck's mistake, Demetrius AND Lysander fell in love with Helena. The fairy king also put the juice in his wife's eyes so she would fall in love with a donkey.
  • In an attempt to fix his misdemeanour, Puck puts the quarrelling four to sleep so he could amend the mix-up. He made sure that when Demetrius woke up the first thing he saw would be Helena and when Lysander woke up the first thing he saw would be Hermia. When they awoke all was well. 
  • The couples all got married happily and enjoyed a performance of 'Pyramus and Thisbe' from the Mechanicals. The fairy king and queen made up after having an argument over one of the queen's pageboys. 
  • I wonder if my father will still carry out what he has threatened...
  • I'm so happy!
