Plot: On a midsummer’s night, four young Athenian lovers flee to an enchanted forest populated by sprites and fairies. When the mischievous spirit, Puck, mistakenly administers a magical love potion to the wrong person, the lovers suddenly find themselves infatuated with the wrong person. Meanwhile, an acting troupe lead by the boisterously crass Bottom, descend on the forest to rehearse a play for the King, only to be caught up in the shenanigans as well. An uproariously funny play that proves love doesn’t come without it’s hiccups, Shakespeare’s most famous comedy promises to delight audiences of all ages.
