The Duke, Thes- seus is planning to marry Hippolyta. Soon there is trouble as four lovers enter, each anxious for love. Hermia loves Lysander, but her father wants her to marry Demetrius. If she doesn't, she is to be put to death or sent to a nunnery. Demetrius claims to love Hermia, but she loves only Lysander. It is her friend, Helena, who is hopelessly in love with Demetrius. But he despises her. In the nearby woods is found Oberon, King of the fairies, who is on the outs with his Queen, Titania. The whole fairy kingdom is turned upside down with their fighting. Oberon decides to teach Titania a lesson by having her fall in love with a monstrous creature. He sends his assistant Puck, a mischievous prankster, to gather the powerful love potion. Into these same woods Hermia and Lysander go, to run away from her father's wrath. But they are soon followed by Demetrius, who plans to thwart their escape. Demetrius, in turn, is followed by Helena who desperately wants to be near him. Observing this, Oberon decides lo help Helena win her man by using the love potion on Demetrius. He sends Puck to anoint Demetrius. However, Puck mistakenly anoints the wrong man, and it is Lysander who falls in love with Helena. Trying to correct his mistake, Puck also anoints Demetrius. Soon the two men are chasing Helena through the woods, leaving a confused and lonely Hermia to fend for herself. The confusion doesn't end there. Into the woods come some hardy handicraften who decide to present a play in honor of the Duke's wedding. As they begin to rehearse Puck arrives and mischievously turns one of them into a monstrous creature. .After the others run away Titania, recently annointed with the love potion, discovers him and falls madly in love.
