Description: It all begins when Hermia and Lysander flee deep into the forest to escape Hermia's father, Egeus, who wishes Hermia to marry Demetrius. Demetrius himself bicycles into the woods to follow his true love Hermia. Demetrius is soon followed by yet another desperate lover: Helena, who adores Demetrius but finds her affections dreadfully unrequited. Crashing and flailing, and falling into mud puddles, the foursome find themselves near the secret home of the fairies, where water nymphs and satyrs party into the night at the fairy bars and cafes. Chaos ensues when the trickster Puck (Stanley Tucci) administers a secret love potion-causing the lovers to mix-and-match with outrageous results. Meanwhile, a band of actors come to the same woods to put on a play-a play that is interrupted when its star actor Bottom becomes a strange pawn in the love battles between Oberon, King of the Fairies, and Titania his Queen.
