In the days before the Duke of Athens’ marriage to the Amazon Queen, three young lovers are brought to court for judgement regarding an arranged wedding. Rather than face a penalty, the lovers flee into the woods where Titania, queen of the fairies, has gathered Fairyland to bless the royal marriage. A band of craftsmen have gone into the same woods to rehearse a play they hope to perform as part of the nuptial celebration. Oberon, king of the fairies, arrives intent on revenge with his imp servant, Puck, and the fun begins.
“Tale of love lost and found in an enchanted forest … a gleeful paean.”
