When Oberon, King of the fairies, uses his magic upon four runaway lovers in a midsummer wood outside Athens, chaos ensues. Who really loves whom? A band of well-meaning but bungling local actors have their rehearsal sabotaged by the mischievous sprite Puck who enchants their leader Bottom and Titania, the Fairy Queen. The result is a lively and anarchic comedy, which can only be resolved by an elaborate disentangling of spells.
