The course of true love never did run smooth...

Threatened with life in a convent or a death penalty, rebellious Hermia defies her father's wishes to marry Demetrius and plans to elope with her true love, Lysander. She confides in her best friend Helena, unaware that she secretly loves Demetrius. In the hopes of winning his heart, Helena confesses the plan to Demetrius and all four escape to the forest, setting in motion a night of magic and mayhem that will change them forever.

Deep in the forest, an argument between Oberon and Titania, the fairy king and queen, has unexpected consequences when the effects of a magical plant causes Titania to fall in love with an enchanted stranger. When the four lovers cross paths with the fairy king, the plant's magic is once again put to use, but a simple mistake results in a hilarious miscommunication.

William Shakespeare was born to John Shakespeare and Mary Arden in late April 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon. He wrote about 38 plays (the precise number is uncertain), many of which are regarded as the most exceptional works of drama ever produced, including Romeo and Juliet (1595), Henry V (1599), Hamlet (1601), Othello (1604), King Lear (1606) and Macbeth (1606), as well as a collection of 154 sonnets, which number among the most profound and influential love poetry in English. Shakespeare died in Stratford in 1616.
