A Midsummer Night's Dream Act 1, Scene 2: "A room in Quince's house in Athens"

The subplot comes alive as Quince the carpenter, Bottom the weaver, Flute the bellows-mender, Snout the tinker, and Starveling the tailor discuss a play they plan to put on for the wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta. The plans are discussed in Quince's house, and Quince is in charge of the play and assigning roles; however, Bottom wants to take on all the parts, including the lion and both male and female lovers of the play Pyramus and Thisbe. Bottom humorously energizes the group of lower-classmen as they decide upon parts and plan to memorize their lines so that they may be chosen by the Duke and Duchess to perform.
