A Midsummer Night's Dream
A triple wedding at the palace after night of strange happenings in the wood.
Lysander and Hermia are in love but they flee Athens because Hermia’s father wants her to marry Demetrius.
Helena is in love with Demetrius so tells him of the flight to win favour. Both follow the lovers into the forest where Oberon and Titania, King and Queen of the Fairies, are feuding.
Oberon orders Puck to use a love potion on Demetrius so that he will fall in love with Helena but Puck mistakenly anoints Lysander’s and Demetrius’ eyes and both fall in love with Helena. Meanwhile, in another part of the wood, craftsmen are rehearsing a play and Puck fixes an ass’s head on one named Bottom with whom Titania, under the influence of the potion, falls in love.
After much confusion harmony is restored, and the play is performed at the multiple wedding of the Duke and the four young lovers.
Come and see Selby High School students perform an abridged version of this Shakespeare classic.
