“The course of true love never did run smooth."
- A Midsummer Night's Dream, Act I
Fairies and mortals alike navigate romantic conundrums against the backdrop of an enchanted woodland…
A young couple tries to elope, a jilted lover attempts to win back her beloved’s heart, and a quarrel threatens the relationship of the fairy king and queen.
A LOVE STORY
A love potion and case of mistaken identities further complicate matters.
Nevertheless, “happily ever after” comes to all in the end!
