“And yet, to say the truth, reason and love keep little company together nowadays.”
In the kingdom of Athens, Helena loves Demetrius; Demetrius loves Hermia; and Hermia loves Lysander who loves her too. But since Hermia’s father wants Demetrius as his son-in-law, the lovers elope to the forest, only to be followed by Hermia’s best friend— Helena—and her suitor.
What happens in the forest, which is enchanted by fairies and elves who work around magical flowers and love potions, when the mischievous elf, Puck, is asked to dispense the spell and he mistakenly places the flower’s juice on Lysander’s eyes instead of Demetrius’? Will the lovers be united with their true love?
