Directed by Jayme McBride
Everyone knows that love is complicated, but this is just absurd.
Egeus finds a perfect husband for his daughter, Hermia, but Hermia loves someone else. This is a classic story, right?
Until Egeus insists that Hermia marry the man he found, or he will invoke an ancient Athenian Law that says fathers can put their daughters to death for disobeying them - or WORSE - he could force her to become a nun!
Hermia and her boyfriend, Lysander, are extremely mature and know just what to do...they run away to elope, into the closest forest to them!
Egeus goes to Demetrius, the man he wanted Hermia to marry, and implores him to find his daughter. Demetrius has no idea where to begin, until his ex-girlfriend Helena comes along with some helpful advice about her best friend Hermia's whereabouts. Demetrius goes into the woods to find Hermia, and Helena follows her ex-boyfriend because she's super mature too, and knows that following a man around wherever he goes always ends in marriage.
But wouldn't you know it? The forest turns out to be enchanted, and filled with fairies that serve a fairy King and Queen, and a mischievous shape-shifting court jester...
What will become of Hermia, Lysander, Demetrius, and Helena?
