Subject:        Midsummer Night's Dream

Watching a production of MND at my local theatre I once again realized
what a cruel and depressing piece this "comedy" is. The same guy who
presented us in Romeo and Juliet two lovers who are absolutely sure of
their love for each other he shows us in MND that every object of love
is exchangable. The lovers are treated like guinea pigs in a cold
professor's lab. How can Hermia and Lysander and Helena and Demetrius
ever be happy and trusting again after all the things that happened in
the forest?
