Set in modern dress.
Celebrations are planned to mark the marriage of Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons.
Egeus comes before Theseus with his daughter Hermia, who is in love with Lysander, although her father is insisting that she marry Demetrius.
The Duke orders Hermia to obey her father, in accordance with Athenian law, otherwise she will either be put to death or forced to enter a convent.
Hermia and Lysander decide to elope that night. They reveal their plan to Hermia’s best friend, Helena.
Helena is Demetrius’ former lover and she is still in love with him, although he doesn’t love her anymore.
Hoping to win back his affection, Helena tells Demetrius of the plan.
That night, Hermia and Lysander steal away to the forest, with Demetrius and Helena in hot pursuit.
