Plot summary:
Taken from A Midsummer Night's Dream, 'Pyramus and Thisbe' takes the Mechanicals' scenes and turns them into their own short play from casting to performance.
Pyramus and Thisbe are a couple of young Babylonians in love, separated by their disapproving families. The star-crossed lovers conspire to elope, which leads to tragic consequences. This play is the Mechanicals’ only hope of getting their amateur theatre troupe off the ground – if everyone learns their own lines, sticks to their own parts, and shows up to rehearsals on time.
