Description

The Duke of Athens, Theseus, is marrying the queen of the Amazons. A four day extravaganza is planned out and Athenians gather to celebrate the occasion. Two sets of star-crossed lovers must work through the repercussions of defying family expectations.

Into this mix are a band of fairies including the fairy king, Oberon, and Titania, the queen who are feuding over an Indian prince. A love potion is introduced through the fairies’ meddling and the Athenian lovers are given the potion with disastrous results.
