A timeless story of trickery, love triangles, and magic, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” sees four Athenians competing for and swapping affections with one another as they are bewitched by the mischievous fairy Puck.
Meanwhile, a group of amateur actors rehearse the play which they are to perform before a wedding. Both groups find themselves in a forest inhabited by fairies who manipulate the humans and are engaged in their own domestic intrigue.
