Act V, Scene 4
Sir Hugh Evans enters with the fairies; he is disguised as a Satyr, a mythical deity who is part horse or goat. He reminds the fairies to remember their lines and then leads them to their places in the forest.
This short scene moves the action forward. Evans, in the guise of a Satyr, brings in the children, who are dressed as fairies. William Page is amongst them. Evans coaches the children and reminds them of their three spoken lines, which are to be delivered when Sir Evans gives them the cue.
