The opening scene leads the audience to believe they're in for another evening of ordinary comedy. The audience however, soon becomes aware that although Shakespeare has written a romantic comedy, it is anything but ordinary. He leaves the ordinary and moves us to the woods outside of Athens....... our ordinary story becomes filled with mistaken identities, frustrated love, and confused lovers.
