In the Book In the Movie
   Oberon curses Titania in order to acquire her Indian page. Before releasing her, he reveals to Puck that his plan succeeded. Though Oberon begins with the same intentions, all mention of the Indian page is dropped after the initial confrontation and is never resolved.
   The mechanicals first meet in Peter Quince's house to cast their play. They meet in a public area where Bottom is humiliated by a set of children. His spirit is damaged and Quince insists that they rehearse in the forest to be not seen.
   It is never mentioned or implied that Bottom is married. Bottom hides from his angry wife in the city, who urgently seeks her "useless dreamer" of a husband.
   Starveling is purposely cast as "Moonshine" to represent the moon by holding a lantern, thornbush, and dog. This casting never occurs and Starveling steps in haphazardly to represent the moon without prior practice.
   Peter Quince opens the play within the play as the Prologue, explaining the action to come and then departing the stage. Snout as the Wall opens the play. Peter Quince remains backstage to feed lines and become frustrated with the shortcomings of his cast.
