The "Lovers"
The VISION
The lovers are walking the fine line between reality and the hallucinations brought on by growing senile.
The Actors are nurses at the assisted living facility, who are putting on a show for the residents
The fairies are actually the doctor and pharmacist in the community that the lovers see and hallucinate as fairy creatures.
THEMES/ SOCIAL CONTEXT
VERSIONS OF REALITY
Senile serve as a way to explain plot holes or add a gauzy mystery, but the different versions of reality also extend to perspectives. In Lysander's book, if you don't have to fight for it, it isn't true love. Puck sees the mortal world as full of fools, and Theseus is certain fairies aren't real. These differing perspectives are central to the play, revealing that each man envisions his reality according to his circumstances.
MAN and THE NATURAL WORLD
We're not always sure where humans and the natural world, as two separate elements, fall in relation to each other. Sometimes humans are part of the natural world, and complemented by it, like women becoming fertile with the midsummer fest, or crops that agree with seasons to put food on the table. Other times the natural world seems alien to man because he has separated himself from it
