The Questors present
A Midsummer Night's Dreamby William Shakespeare
The course of true love never did run smooth...
Young lovers, feuding fairies and amateur actors collide in the woods outside Athens on a midsummer night.
Demetrius is engaged to Hermia, but Hermia loves Lysander. Helena loves Demetrius. Oberon and Titania, the king and queen of the fairies, are quarrelling so the king enlists the help of that spiteful sprite Puck to humiliate his queen.
Meanwhile some local tradesmen rehearse that immortal love story - Pyramus and Thisbee in the woods. Love spells and mistaken identities ensue and soon Titania is in love with a donkey-headed actor, both Lysander and Demetrius are in love with Helena and Hermia is beside herself with rage and grief.
In this, most beloved of Shakespeare’s comedies about love and the confusion it brings, there are happy endings for all who deserve them.
