A Midsummer Night’s Dream

by William Shakespeare
Adapted for Scriptsandsketches.com

From Act 3 Scene 1. Oberon, King of the Fairies, has cast a spell on the Fairy Queen, TITANIA, as she sleeps. This spell will make her fall in love with the first creature she sees. Meanwhile. Puck, Oberon’s mischievous servant, comes across a group of ‘mechanicals’ rehearsing a play. He transforms the head of one of the actors, BOTTOM the Weaver, into that of an ass. His fellow actors run terrified from the scene leaving the bemused Bottom, unaware of his transformation, singing to himself. This wakens the sleeping Titania who falls instantly and passionately in love with the ass-headed man.

BOTTOM: Methinks, mistress, you should have little reason for that: and yet, to say the truth, reason and love keep little company together now-a-days. The more the pity, that some honest neighbours will not make them friends. Nay, I can gleek upon occasion.

TITANIA: Thou art as wise as thou art beautiful.

BOTTOM: Not so, neither; but if I had wit enough to get out of this wood, I have enough to serve mine own turn.

TITANIA: Out of this wood do not desire to go: Thou shalt remain here, whe’r thou wilt or no. I am a spirit of no common rate; The summer still doth tend upon my state; And I do love thee: therefore, go with me; I’ll give thee fairies to attend on thee, and they shall fetch thee jewels from the deep, And sing, while thou on pressed flowers dost sleep: And I will purge thy mortal grossness so that thou shalt like an airy spirit go.
