Thesues & Oberon

Played by

Phil Cheadle

Theseus is the duke of Athens, recently returned from conquering the Amazons and about to marry the conquered queen, Hippolyta. Theseus himself gives an air of confidence, authority, and benevolent power.

Oberon is the king of the fairies and enters the play battling it out with his wife, Titania, who refuses to give up the young prince she has kidnapped to him. Oberon’s desire for revenge on Titania leads him to send Puck away to find the love-potion flower that creates so much of the play’s confusion and farce.
