A Midsummer Night's Dream Epilogue Summary Page 1

  • Puck closes the play by addressing us, the audience, directly: He announces that if we don't like the play, the best way to remedy the situation is to pretend it's only been a dream. Instead of cursing the players for a bad play, we should forgive them.
  • Finally, he asks for applause if we the audience accept his apologies. All can be certain that Robin (as he calls himself) will make amends before long (presumably, with the performance of another play).
  • The End.
