A Midsummer Night’s Dream Synopsis and Character Breakdown

In Athens, a young woman (Hermia) refuses to wed a noble man (Demetrius) and plans to flee to the forest with her actual love (Lysander) to escape either an unhappy marriage or her own death. Meanwhile another young woman (Helena) has been scorned by the fickle Demetrius and is determined to win his affections back by any means necessary- including helping him chase down Hermia and Lysander...and in return chasing him. At the same time, a group of rude mechanicals rehearse a dramatic play in the forest in hopes of performing it at court. However, not all goes to plan. Cue the warring fairy king (Oberon) and fairy queen (Titania), whose quarrel results in the spreading of magic among the humans by the meddlesome Puck.

THE LOVERS: 

Demetrius-(male) A young man of Athens, initially in love with Hermia and ultimately in love with Helena.  He’s wealthy, handsome and a bit pompous.  
Lysander-(male) A young man of Athens, in love with Hermia, whom he runs away with to the forest.  He becomes the victim of magical misunderstanding.
Hermia- (female) A young woman of Athens, in love with Lysander but promised to Demetrius.  She’s passionate and clever, sweet on the outside but fiery underneath.
Helena-(female) A young woman of Athens, friends with Hermia, in love with Demetrius.  She’s pitiful in her spurned love, but overly aggressive about regaining Demetrius’ attentions and ends up lost in the woods with the other lovers.

THE MECHANICALS:

Bottom-(male or female) Town local attempting to run a successful theater troupe and doing it poorly.  S/he is overly confident about her/his acting abilities (which are actually horrible) and is always the star of her/his own life.  
Flute-(male) Town local and semi-professional actor.  He’s the most organized of the three mechanicals and realistic about the project.
Snug-(male or female) Town local joining Bottom’s acting troupe.  S/he has never been in a performance before and is excited to be involved in any possible way.

THE FAIRIES:

Puck-(male or female) Oberon’s jester, a mischievous fairy who delights in playing pranks on mortals.
Oberon-(male) King of the fairies.  He’s powerful and users to having his orders followed.  He’s embroiled in a dispute with his queen.
Titania- (female) Queen of the fairies.  She’s beautiful, powerful and strong, with a side of fiery temper.
Peaseblossom-(female) Sprite, main attendant to Titania.

FAIRY ENSEMBLE: Non-speaking roles.  Sprites that inhabit the magical forest that makes up the majority of the play’s setting.  They’re playful and sweet, but have a mischievous streak in them.
