One of the early comedies of Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream can be suitably called as a 'wedding play', as it presents an atmosphere of wedding celebration.
There is a complex interlocking of plots as the play features the adventures of two young Athenian couples who come to the woods as a part of their plan to elope from their houses.
Rich with supernatural elements and creative imagination, the play gives lyrical expressions to themes like love, dream, and blessings of nature on mankind - all in a lighter vein.
