Perhaps the most well-known of Shakespeare’s comedies, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM mixes marriage, magic, and misadventure into an unforgettable blend. When two groups of mortals–four frustrated young lovers and a troupe of tradesmen trying to make it big as actors–wander into the forest outside their city, they unexpectedly become entangled in a battle of wills between the king and queen of the fairies, with enchanting and thoroughly ridiculous results. Can anyone figure out how to live happily ever after without making an ass of himself?
