A comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1590 and 1597. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the Mechanicals), who are controlled and manipulated by the Fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.

Spring has sprung, the dogwoods are in full flower, and theres a truly delicious cat-fight to be had in McLeantake my word for it. Now that the solemnities of the season have been properly observed its time to get back to love, enchantment, long nails and the occasional cheap laugh.
