'Midsummer' is perhaps the most famous of William Shakespeare's comedies. Young lovers Lysander and Hermia wish to be together, but Hermia's father Egeus has promised her to Demetrius. Meanwhile, Helena is in love with Demetrius. Theseus, ruler of Athens, upholds Egeus's will, leaving Lysander and Hermia to run away together. Demetrius pursues them while himself being pursued by Helena.
