True love. Puppy love. First love. Unrequited love. Love at first sight. A CRUSH!
How do these happen to us, and why? Is there an answer?

Mortals from all walks of life engage with the Fairy Kingdom in a hilarious confection of poetic beauty and comic twist. Oberon and Titania, the “rude mechanicals,” the four young lovers, and Athenian royalty all struggle with this thing called love, to the great amusement of Puck, who famously declares “Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
