William Shakespeare and his traveling dramatic company have just perfected their latest play: "A Midsummer Night's Dream". But, before they perform it for the public, Shakespeare is under contract to give a performance for a very special audience: Dream, the King and Queen of Faeries and their subjects, the very people the play is about.
