A Midsummer Night's Dream
« Reply #1 on: Mar:11:2019 »

Author: William Shakespere / Year: 1564-1616  / Genre: Humor
The plot is as light and enchanting as the settings themselves. The Duke of Athens is busy with preparations for his forthcoming wedding to Hippolyta the Amazonian Queen. In the midst of this, Egeus, an Athenian aristocrat marches in, flanked by his lovely daughter Hermia and her two suitors, Lysander and Demetrius. Egeus wants Hermia to marry Demetrius, but she has given her heart to Lysander. The Duke rules that Hermia must obey her father or else face banishment or execution. Lysander and Hermia make plans to elope, but here the plot takes an interesting twist. Helena, a former sweetheart of Demetrius, learns about the lovers' plan and decides that the way to get back into Demetrius' good books is to tell him about this! The two pairs land up at the same time in a forest.
