A Midsummer Night's Dream

Do most people resemble Titania, the fairy queen; Puck, the mischief-maker; or someone else? Pupils take a fun quiz to find out which character they are most like from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. They also explore a weekly backstage blog with information about the Deutsche Bank production of the play and read an easy-to-understand synopsis.
