The parts of the play performed were where six men rehearse
and perform a play before the Duke and Duchess on their wedding day. Peter Quince is the troop leader and playwright, with
the over-enthusiastic, pain-in-the-neck Bottom, along with Starvling, Snug, Snout, and Flute all given parts to act out.
Also, Titania, having just had magic flower juice dropped in
her eyes by Oberon; she falls in love with Bottom who now has an asses head on his shoulders the work of the mischievous Puck.
The play culminates in the staging of the dramatic play where
Pyramus (Bottom) and Thisbe (Flute) die in similar circumstances to Romeo and Juliet.
