Set in an imaginary iteration of ancient Athens, ruled by Queen Theseus and her lover Queen of the Amazons, where anyone can fall in love with everyone, and love spells dissolve the world's strife.
Three young ladies and one young man find themselves intoxicated by the powers of the forest and are changed forever. The Rude Mechanicals, highly experienced performers in grand theatrical traditions, who are down on their luck, are transformed into magical beings and realize their dream of performing spectacularly once again for royalty. Dwelling in the forest are creatures led by a shadowy sprite, a spectral queen, and a king whose dulcet harmonies set the world aright.
