Shakespeare's Globe: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius - but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia...

Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.
