Role Description

Hippolyta/Titania: both are strong women and not to be messed with, though Titania is the more poetic of the two; athletic, excellent verse speaking and movement skills; sense of authority, sexual presence, able to be silly when called upon to do so (must be adolescently smitten by Bottom when he is transformed to the ass); protectress of the Changeling Child (Titania), loyal to her court, and attended by a very healthy, sexy retinue of men (Peasblossom, Cobweb, Moth, and Mustardseed); Hippolyta is a Queen in her own right, taken captive in war; does not find hope in the marriage with Theseus till late in the play when he chooses forgiveness over punishment and he begins to loosen his paternalistic hold on the world.
