  • A Midsummer Night's Dream
  • A   many century ago   in Athens, there were four  young adults,  two girls and two men, Helena  and  Hermia, and  Lysander and Demetrius respectively. Helena loved Demetrius but he did not love her . Instead  Demetrius was to marry Hermia, in a marriage arranged by Ageus, Hermia's father  who loved Lysander who loved her as well.  Also of note, were the king and queen of the fairies, Oberon and Titania  along with a playful fairy named Puck. There is also a band of thespians headed by the eccentric Nick Bottom who   are preparing to have a  play for  Theseus , the Duke of Athens' wedding.  Ageus tells Hermia that she must either marry Demetrius, become a nun, or die. She and Lysander plan to flee through the forest to go to his aunt's house. In this time, Helena and Demetrius both find this out and Helena follows Demetrius into the forest.  Demetrius tells Helena  that he has no  desire to be with. Even after many insults and threats, she still loves him. During this time, a troupe of  actors are trying to perform a play, whilst in practice, Puck, under Oberon's orders, turns Bottom's head into that of a donkey. Also He has Titiana fall  in love with Bottom. Oberon also orders Puck to put the magic potion on Demetrius but Puck accidentally puts it on Lysander, who falls in love with Helena.
  • We have made a huge mistake. We must fix it soon.
  • Yes we must.
  • The problem was only partly fixed as Demetrius also now loved Helena.
  • Why does everyone hate me!!!?
  • I love you Helena and not this wretch of a woman !
  • I love you Helena, much more than this buffoon!
  • Why do all of you toy with my feelings?
  • After a bit of trickery, everyone fell asleep. The spell put on Lysander was then reversed and now only Demetrius loved Helena. After  finding the group, Hermia's father gave in and let her marry Lysander as Demetrius no longer wanted to marry her. Also, Oberon lifted the spell on Titiana and made Nick Bottom normal again so he could perform the play
  • Thus the thespians performed their play and everyone was happy.
