Next thing you know, Puck's squeezing some love juice onto men's eyes to make them fall in love with the right woman, but oops things get messed up when the men see and fall in love with the wrong women. And of course we have Puck's fun with Titiana, the fairy queen, who after getting some love juice herself, falls in love with an uncouth actor who, thanks to Puck, has the head of an ass (as in donkey). Throughout all of this we have Puck's wonderfully clever and manipulative self running around and alternately increasing the madness and aiding the lovers. The little tart even asks for forgiveness for his tricks at the end of the play.
I adore this play for its fun, light humor as well as its clever twists and turns, and no fool is more lovable than the one and only Puck.
