More > the adventures of four young Athenian actors, the couples Hermia and Lysander, and Helena and Demetrius. The couples get lost in the woods, but not just any woods: the romantic interplay is turned up when they enter faerie land, over which Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of the Fairies, reign.

More > performance at the wedding of Sir Thomas Berkeley and Elizabeth Carey, in February, 1596. There is no known source for the plot of A Midsummer Night's Dream, although individual elements can be traced to classical literature; for example, the story of Pyramus and Thisbe is told in Ovid's Metamorphoses and the transformation of Bottom into an ass is descended from Apuleius' The Golden Ass; Shakespeare would have studied both texts at school.
