Sample Text:

Narrator: So. The real version, please!
Oberon: Allow me to start …
Narrator: (Interrupting) Hold it! Hold it! Do you really think you are best qualified to comment on real events? I mean, no offence but …. you were a mere fairy ….
Oberon: A king of fairies!
Narrator: But a fairy none the less!
Hermia: Well, that’s where you’re wrong! Oberon, haven’t we talked enough about this?
Oberon: (Reluctantly) Well, yes … But …
Helena: Don’t tell me he still sees himself as Fairy King!
Narrator: But he was! You’re losing me already!
Lysander: OK. Maybe the ladies aren’t making themselves very clear!
Demetrius: It wouldn’t be for the first time!
Hermia and Helena: (Together, in fury) What?
Oberon: Boys! Boys! Remember what we said? No laying the blame
Hermia: Especially when it was them that got in such a muddle!
Demetrius: You mean, when I couldn’t make up my mind who to love?
Helena: Please! We’ve gone over all that! Haven’t you hurt me enough?
Hermia: Well, Lysander wasn’t any better. Turning from me to you. What was that all about?
Helena: I hope you’re not implying my looks didn’t match yours?
Hermia: Of course not! But then again, if you hadn’t gone and blabbed about Lysander and I running away together ..
Demetrius: I’d never have followed otherwise
Oberon: And you’d never have all eventually worked out whom it was that you truly loved!
Narrator: (Muttering) There have got to be easier ways of doing things!
Lysander: Ah, but “the course of true love never did run smooth”!
Oberon: You can say that again! Especially when you’ve got incompetents like my servant, Puck, working for you!
Hermia: Yes, he did rather make a mess of things! First anointing my Lysander’s eyes with that purple flower
Lysander: And making me fall in love with Helena!
Helena: Exchanging “a raven for a dove” I seem to remember you saying?
Hermia: Why, you “painted maypole”!
Oberon: Ladies! Ladies! We’ve been through all this! You know it all got fixed in the end.
