Hermia, Egeus' daughter, is supposed to marry Demetrius according to her father's wishes. But she loves Lysander and runs away with him into the forest. On their trail: Demetrius and Helena, unhappily in love with the abandoned man. The elf king Oberon rules in the forest. His world has fallen apart since he fell out with his wife Titania.
To break her resistance, Oberon commissions the goblin Puck to manipulate Titania's consciousness with a love drug. What works as expected: Titania falls for Zettel, a member of a group of craftsmen who is rehearsing a play for the wedding in the forest. But the four young Athenians also end up in Puck's hands - with unforeseen consequences. Arguments break out, chaos and anarchy. Nothing is as it seems, nothing stays as it was. But every dream comes to an end at some point.
The director and actor Matthias Mosbach, who has worked closely with the RambaZamba Theater ensemble for many years, stages Shakespeare's play about the trials and tribulations of love, about the fluid boundaries between the sensual and the supernatural and about the border between dreams and reality.
