Set in Athens, the play follows the trials, heartache, and eventual happiness of two Athenian couples and the entertaining antics of meddling, magical fairies. The main plot involves two sets of couples-Hermia and Lysander, and Helena and Demetrius-whose romances are complicated by the whims of Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of the Fairies, and their servant Puck.

Shakespeare’s lighthearted play explores the capricious, dream-like, and sometimes ridiculous nature of love. A Midsummer Night’s Dream brings further humor with its play-within-a-play format, in which a group of craftsmen celebrates the upcoming marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta by putting on a badly performed play.
