Demetrius and Lysander love Hermia. Hermia loves Lysander, but is betrothed to Demetrius—much to her dismay. And no one loves Helena, though her heart belongs to Demetrius.   When Hermia and Lysander escape through the forest to elope, Demetrius chases them—and Helena chases him, only to find themselves in the midst of a Fairy King and Queen at war with each other.  And when they, in turn, are followed by  a group of amateur actors intent on rehearsing a play, the scene is set  for a night of mischief, misunderstandings and merriment.
