A Midsummer Night’s Dream

A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare  [Adult Non-fiction]

by Christine, 12th grader

A truly hilarious play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream centers around the lives of four young people: Helena, Hermia, Demetrius, and Lysander. Helena and Lysander are in love, but Helena’s father wants her to marry Demetrius, who is being stalked by Hermia. When Helena and Lysander run away to the forest to escape Helena’s father, the others follow. The fairies notice Hermia’s distress over Demetrius’ treatment of her and decide to interfere. Except, they interfere with the wrong couple… and chaos ensues. I truly enjoyed this play!
