2. Overview: High School RomCom?

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

William Shakespeare, 1600
Famous for: Quarreling lovers, mischievous fairies, and a guy who’s a real, um, donkey.

You really could call A Midsummer Night’s Dream a commentary on high school relationships. In other words, Shakespeare’s play is about the nature of love—the way it can be confusing, out of balance, and at times, totally upside-down. But don’t expect anything serious—or tragic—about this meditation on romance. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is all about not taking the difficulties of love too seriously.
