Bill Shakespeare saddles up and rides west for this rough-and-tumble iambic adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Rival brothers Douglas and Lester fight for the delicate hand of Henrietta until trickster Coyote’s magic flute makes them sweet on Henrietta’s best friend Helen. Lost in the woods and led astray under the spells, the four young lovers squabble—the love-struck boys fight over Helen, jealous Henrietta boils with anger and hapless Helen is stuck in the middle of it all. In another part of the woods, Pete and his thespian buddies are practicing a new tragic farce to perform at Mayor Duke’s upcoming wedding, but where’s their leading man? Well, Nick’s fallen into the Spider Queen’s web, and she’s stuck on him like stink on a skunk… literally! In the end, all is mended, and the couples sort things out in time to join the mayor and his bride-to-be for a triple wedding, where Pete and the actors put on The Tragedy of Romiette and Julio with roaring results. Young and old folks alike will take a shine to this rugged mix of Shakespeare, cowboy poetry and Native American folklore.
